House of Horrors
Adam and Barbara, a couple living in the country, must have the worst luck in the world. Not only do they tragically die after driving off a bridge and plunging into a river, but they also can’t seem to rest in peace because an eccentric family takes over their only sanctuary—their home. Cue their last hope: the crazy, perverted freak Beetlejuice! This 1988 Tim Burton–directed horror-comedy has all the makings of a classic, including a wonderfully demented performance by Michael Keaton as the titular ghoul, a younger, skinnier Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder as a teenage goth, and a haunting score by Danny Elfman.
