Tim Burton sought out Anton Furst to be his production designer but Furst had committed to High Spirits (1988), a film which was spiraling out of control. The two would work together the following year on Бэтмен (1989) for which Furst would go on to win an Academy Award.See more »
Continuity: When the Maitlands are scrambling to get back to the attic door and away from the sandworm, a far shot shows the white door hovering in space some distance above the sand. But in the next closeup, the Maitlands are almost even with the door while standing.See more »

AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER, EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT! (that's not just a quote). 27 September 2000
This is one of Tim Burton's best films. His sophomore effort shows the story of a married couple (the Maitlands played with good degree by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who die accidentally off a bridge and wind up the target for a upper-class family (including a young yet well played Winona Ryder) and a weird yet scary ghost (with the most) named Beetleguise (or Beetlejuice in a scene of laughs) played to immense complexity by Michael Keaton. Sure this plot may sound a little anti-climactic being mainly gags and not really a focused story, but so what? In a film where you see sandworms from saturn, shrimps that attach after calypso and a nut who has seen the exorcist 167 time (insert quote here), why bother with a plot. Great fun every time I watch. Reccomendable to anyone.
