They have given their precious time to decorate their house and make it their own, but unfortunately a family is moving in, and not quietly. Adam and Barbara try to scare them out, but end up becoming the main attraction to the money making family. They call upon Beetlejuice to help, but Beetlejuice has more in mind than just helping.

When Lydia starts taking Polaroid pictures of the Maitlands, she takes 12 pictures in 10 seconds. First, the motorized version of the Polaroid camera, the SX-70, takes, processes, and spits out one picture in about 3 seconds, so it would take at least 30 seconds to take all the pictures. Second, a pack of film for the SX-70 only contains 10 pictures. Third, for each picture taken, the images would take at least 30 to 45 seconds to become visible. Fourth, the flash also has only 10 bulbs. See more »

Keaton steals the show as the title character in this off the wall comedy from director Burton. Baldwin and Davis are two new ghosts who try to scare new occupants of their home out, with the help of "bio exorcist" Keaton. Won a much deserved Oscar for its make up effects.
