Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice

September 30th, 2018

Recorded in beautiful Burbank, The Boys and Ghouls duo take a long look at 1986’s “Beetlejuice” and try to figure out how this odd, supernatural, visual feast of a macabre comedy ever came together.

 

Listen in, as we map Tim Burton’s road to directing this improbably iconic film and examine how it all got started… with a dark screenplay by a pair of writing partners who went crazy on the post-Ghostbusters concept of, “What if the ghosts were haunted by humans?”

 

Add in calypso music, the public’s first real look at the Tim Burton style, improvisational actors, a young Winona Ryder, and stop-motion special effects and the result was a hit with audiences; and such a hit with children that a Beetlejuice cartoon was produced ASAP.

 

Join us, please, as we unravel the appeal and inspirations that surround this movie where the recently deceased take on the overbearing living with a little help from the ghost with the most, Beetlejuice.
