Big Screen Big Apple:Tim Burton Retrospect 2nd Night at MoMA with BeetleJuice
MoMA kicks off it's second night of celebration with director Tim Burton by screening is ghostly, yet hysterical, dark comedy Beetlejuice, starring Winona Ryder as a dramatically depressed teenager that gave every young darkstar spank material for years to come....mmmmm......Oh yeah, it also stars Michael Keaton as the entertaining yet painfully annoying spook Beetlejuice, who is hired by a boring ghost couple(Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) to scare the current tennants out of their dream home.
IMDB says:"This is the story of Adam and Barbara who live in a beautiful house in New England. One day while driving home they are involved in a terrible auto accident. They manage to walk home only to discover later that they have died and now haunt their house. When their house is purchased by an out of state family, they feel their home is threatened by the over-the-top artists wife and real-estate idea-man husband. Their only relief is the Gothic daughter of the family. Their attempts at scaring the family out of the house are ignored or laughed at. Finally they fall to the temptation to use the people-exorcizer Beetle Juice. When they find his tactics too dangerous, they attempt to contain him and save the family they were trying to boot.
