This is one of those movies that people either like or they probably haven't seen it. Beetle Juice is one of those cult classics that at first glance it might not be clear why it holds such appeal, but once you watch it you’ll wonder what took you so long!
When I first saw Beetle Juice I actually watched it again right afterwards to understand it fully, and got so much more out of it the second time through. Now when it comes on I never miss it. There has been a lot of talk about a sequel to this movie as well, but I really hope they don’t. Leave it a one hit wonder, the way it was meant to be.
This movie starts off with a couple that end up dying, and then a new family moves into the dead couple’s home – but they are still there. With the title Beetle Juice you would expect him to be the stand out character, but he’s not! The real stand out character for me has to would be Lydia - you’ll understand why I say it’s her when you watch the movie.
The original dead couple still remain in the house and want to get rid of the new family, but find they are not able to do it alone. They enlist the help of Beetle Juice by saying his name three times. This is when all the chaos happens and you need to make sure you are paying attention. So much happens in such a short amount of time that many of the little details you don’t catch until the rewatch.
I’ll stop here though, because if you haven’t seen this movie you really need to experience the journey for yourself. Hopefully like me after you see it, or rewatch it if it’s already a favorite – you’ll be able to see why I love it so much.
