Dedicated to all things spooky and Halloween-centric in Southern Oregon, this blog is
your one-stop reference for horror-themed events and attractions, movie and music
reviews, toy, costume, and prop information, and of course the occasional rant
by our staff of undead lunatics. We slave away day and night (well, mostly
night) to bring you, the horror and haunt fan, the best of the beast in ghastly
fun here in Southern Oregon!

Family Fright Number Five... Beetlejuice

Warner Bros.
Directed by Tim Burton
The fifth pick in our family fright series is the classic, Beetlejuice. I'm not sure I've ever met anyone who hasn't seen this movie but even if you have you may not think of it as a Halloween movie. It's not. But it does have ghosts and monsters and is a wonderful way to get your horror/comedy fix this time of year. Michael Keaton is brilliant and at his best under the direction of Tim Burton (as evidenced by his portrayals of Batman).  Beetlejuice also stars Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Winona Rider and Catherine O'Hara. It is a hilarious, raunchy, raucous ride I can't imagine anyone not enjoying. The movie is rated PG so it should be safe for most little ones. Put it on and shake, shake, shake senora.
