It seems like the solution to the Maitland’s problem would have been to kill the Deetz family right away. Outside of that, being trapped in your house for one-hundred years doesn’t seem like too bad of a deal. That actually sounds a lot better than most other versions of an afterlife that people have pitched to me.
This is really just an aside. …more to come from me this week.
Being trapped in your home for 125 years is a sign you’re dead? Wtf am I then?
A third of the way there?
I like to think as myself as two thirds of the way . . . away.
Just about got teary eyed with the ghost saying it was going to be the best 125 years ever. Thanks for that.
Nothing beats making a woman almost cry.
You’re welcome, Sarah.
I have Beetlejuice on tape and i love it!!! :)
Crazy how it works out, but I kept wishing for a sequel! :)
They did do a cartoon series on TV, but it hasn’t been repeated…
They tried to make a sequel and it was, no joke, going to take place in Hawaii. It was in pre-production for quite a while. I cannot say that I’m sorry it never made it to production.
I understand Egyptians put beetle juice in their tea and also enjoyed butter fly nose soup.
My mom wouldn’t let me watch Beetlejuice when I was a kid.
She still won’t.
You need to set your mom straight.
Maybe with physical violence.
If I did, she’d blame it on my watching Beetlejuice.
Clearly your mother is some sort of evil genius.
If I ever form a think tank, she’s going to be in on it.
Yea, I’m with you on this one. Aside from hanging out with your best friend, with all that free time to plan paranormal “Jackass-esque” pranks on your hands, surely hilarity would ensue.
Also, I might have punched my ticked to Mars if Beetlejuice 2, “Dead In Hawaii” had come to fruition. Wouldn’t want to live on this planet anymore.
Even as a child, I knew sequels set in tropic locales were best reserved for your “Weekend at Bernie’s 2” type films.
I have a special place in my heart for Beetlejuice. Especially when they try and figure out the handbook.
Can they also watch television? Because that would be a deal breaker….what else would you do in 125 years without work?
Master a craft, dance, scare people, read, float around, spend time with your spouse.
I still think you can watch TV– I’m not sure you can change the channel without the help of the living, though.
I have always felt the same way about that movie. Especially if I was trapped with the Alec Baldwin in the film. (But not the current Alec Baldwin. Although he did maintain a good head of hair.) I’d even keep the Harry Belafonte music if required.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Always nice to see a new “face” :)
I agree. I wouldn’t have to go to work, and I may finish reading all the books I own.
Being a ghost sounds so great.
