(SPOT.ph) Alright, who said "Beetlejuice" three times? 'Cause we need to thank them for bringing the wonky poltergeist to local viewers. The Tim Burton cult classic Beetlejuice will be streaming on Netflix starting July 1. For the uninitiated, this film was one of the first to introduce the technicolor netherworld that is Burton's imagination—not to mention cement Winona Ryder as the realest Goth Queen of the '90s. We can already imagine all the costumes that'll be resurrecting this Halloween!
Beetlejuice follows the misadventures of freshly deceased couple Barbara and Adam Maitland (Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin, respectively) as they try to rid their home of a new family that just moved in: the Deetz, Charles (Jeffrey Jones), his wife Delia (Catherine O'Hara), and their daughter Lydia (Ryder). The Maitlands unwittingly hire the crazy Beetlejuice—whose real name is actually Betelgeuse, but spelling is hard enough as it is—to help them get rid of the new family.
This film was released in 1988. It was followed by Burton's other classics Edward Scissorhands in 1990 and The Nightmare Before Christmas in 1993. If you haven't watched one of the first dark comedies of Burton, here's your chance!
