Many people still consider video watching a great way of calming and having a good time. If you are one of those people who enjoy watching films and do so every time you get yourself a chance, you probably already know that home buying when you waited in line on the video store only to find the fact that movie you wanted to watch was not on stock happen to be over. Or at least they should be. On line movie rentals have been available for quite some time now, and more and more people prefer this form of renting movies, as it is more convenient.

Inventive and Fun take on the Afterlife. RELEASED IN 1988 and directed by Tim Burton, “Beetlejuice” chronicles the story of a couple (Alec Baldwin & Geena Davis) who accidently perish after moving to a quaint Connecticut town. They find themselves sentenced to “haunting” their former house where they try to scare the new wannabe swank couple out (Jeffrey Jones & Catherine O'Hara), but they find that their Goth daughter is more curious than scared (Winona Ryder). Michael Keaton plays the eponymous madcap “bio-exorcist” while Glenn Shadix is on hand as the new couple’s interior designer. This was Burton’s debut on the silver screen and the first half is hilarious entertainment mixed with some interesting insights on the afterlife. The movie puts its best foot forward, but the second half isn’t as compelling and I think the title character is more annoying than amusing. THE FILM RUNS 1 hour & 32 minutes and was shot in beautiful East Corinth, Vermont, and (studio) Culver City, California. WRITERS: Michael McDowell, Larry Wilson and Warren Skaaren. GRADE: B+
