10 Days of Halloween!

Beetlejuice is a 1988 campy spookfest and a favorite of pretty much any Halloween enthusiast.  It has something for everyone, and is the ultimate embodiment of a Tim Burton film.  The film stars a very young and spry Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis as newlyweds who meet their untimely demise.  They are doomed to haunt their former house, even when a new family moves in.  Desperate to get their home back, they call on the help of a devious “bio-exorcist” named Betelgeuse, played by a hilariously creepy Michael Keaton.  Hilarity and shrieks ensue as the three-some try to rid the house of the mortals.  Aided, in part, by an as yet non-kleptopathic Winona Ryder, who plays the mortals’ goth daughter. 

While this may not be your typical Halloween classic, it’s definitely one of my favorites.  This, Edward Scissorhands, and The Nightmare Before Christmas were my very favorite films from about age two onward.  Not your average little blonde girl movies, I know, but there you go.  I’ve been a Burton fan since I was a tot!

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
