Beetlejuice

Julkaistu:

The life of a ghost is not always easy. A couple who recently died in a car accident can experience it. The film literally bursts with funny effects and cartoon humor. The role of the Beetlejuice demon is played by Michael Keaton, who gives a solid performance as an intolerable and self-centered monster. Crazy funny movie full of senseless humor.
