Beetlejuice - 1988

Beetlejuice – 1988

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice! It seems so far that the rumors are coming true and our favorite ghost with the most will come to theaters once again in a sequel.

This sequel has been in the works since the early 1990s, and it has been on and off many times. We have been told that this will not be a “remake” or a “re-envision” of the film. It WILL be a continuation of the story, character and plot of the original film’s title ghost.

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith will be the team to bring this film from the 80s Graveyard to the new generation of Fright Freaks to enjoy. They also have assured everyone that it will also have that distinctive Tim Burton style, since Seth has recently worked with Burton on the “Dark Shadows” film starring one of his right hand actors, Johnny Depp.

Found in the pages of Hollywood lore, it has been said that some of the sequel names were as cheesy as a 1990s sequel could get with some listed as “Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian”. All we can say, is thank God that’s not the case now!

I am curious as to how our good friend over at Retroist.com will take this, but the original was a classic. The music, characters and more have remained as Tim Burton’s distinct style, and also sets the mood for family friendly fun classic Halloween Goth Fun.

The original cast was Michael Keaton, who played the title character, Betelguese, Alex Baldwin and Geena Davis, Catherine O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones and Winona Ryder.

Over the years toys have been popular and also recently on the Rotting Flesh Radio Facebook Page we posted a ‘Cracked’ Magazine from the 80s poking fun at the movie from our closet of goodies we never threw away.

Overall, I am down for a Beetlejuice revival if it is done right and ONLY if Keaton is returning to his role. If and when that happens, let’s do this. But until then, let’s release the beast…BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE, BEETLEJUICE!!!
