Whatever you do, don’t say his name three times in a row!
Of course, we’re talking about Beetlejuice, the popular comedy-fantasy film from 1988. If you have somehow missed this classic, however, we’ll just give you a high-level plot description:
A husband and wife (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) learn that they have not survived their recent car accident and are stuck in limbo, haunting their house. Another family moves in and immediately starts making changes – and wreaking havoc. The ghost couple enlists the help of the supernatural Betelgeuse (Michael Keaton as a hilariously obnoxious “bio-exorcist”) to try to scare the intruders away. But the teenage daughter (portrayed by Winona Ryder) discovers and befriends the pair. Many hijinks ensue.
It’s hard to believe that this fan favorite is now 30 years old. In honor of the milestone anniversary (the official date is March 30), we’ve pulled together yearbook pics from the four main stars.
