Beetlejuice

Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Beetlejuice slipped into theaters in 1988. In the story, Adam & Barbara Maitland lived in Connecticut in an old country home they loved. Barbara’s cousin Jane, a real estate agent, pushed them to sell their home. They refused. Driving home over a bridge, Adam swerved to miss a dog, & ran off the bridge & drowned. They didn’t realize this @ first, but there were a few clues, like a book Handbook to the Recently Dead, no reflections, & they were trapped in the house. Cousin Jane sold the house to a weird family from NYC. The adults were very arty, but not in a good way. The teenage goth daughter, Lydia, was the “normal” one. The Maitlands tried to haunt the new family, the Deetzes, but they couldn’t see or hear them.The Maitlands moved into the attic. A Spector named Beetlejuice, left flyers offering help as a “bio-exorcist.” The Maitlands read the handbook, & they find out the they could try to get the after-life the bureaucracy - which was worse than regular bureaucracy.



When the got back from the underworld, they find Lydia had found & read the afterlife book. Adam & Barbara become friends with Lydia, but they still want the Deetzes out of their house! They contact Beetlejuice, but don’t like his crude behavior & don’t want to work with him. They try on their own to frighten the family, but the family adults are just entertained. Yada, yada, yada, the family finds the Handbook. The father wants to open a spook-tactular themed tourist trap. exhibit. The woman vetting the spooks (Adam & Barbara) interrogates them, but she is performing an exorcism. Lydia asks Beetlejuice to help. He agrees as long as Lydia marries him (so he can enter the mortal world). Beetlejuice stops the exorcism, starts the wedding. The Maitlands stop the wedding. The Maitlands & Deetzes agree to share the home.


Adam & Barbara

In the movie, which was called “Beetlejuice”, it was spelled alternatively as Betelgeuse (pronounced the same.) Betelgeuse can be easily seen in the night sky. If you want to summon the spirit, say his name 3 times. Let me know if it worked for you!


Betelgeuse is the top left star in the Orion constellation
