80s Hit Beetlejuice Turns 30!

Beetlejuice was an undeniable hit from the 80s and the film is actually hitting a pretty serious milestone this year. That’s right, the film is turning 30, not that this means you’re getting old or anything.

“This week, we make good on this historic wrong and discuss 1988’s Beetlejuice, which turned 30 years old this  year,” according to Tampa Bay Times, which also has a dedicated 80s podcast.

“Well, maybe Beetlejuice himself is more like 630 years old – we haven’t done the math. In the show, which is jam-packed with fun clips from the movie, we share some interesting trivia on the movie as well as discuss the upcoming Broadway musical.”

Beetlejuice was released in 1988 and the film was directed by none-other-than the man himself, Tim Burton. It starred a young Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis.

When it comes to spooky, yet cooky films, Burton was definitely the man to get the job done. As we know, he also tapped Ryder for a few roles in films such as Edward Scissorhands.

It’s no surprise that this film has been adapted into a musical, after all, the soundtrack was pretty spectacular. Who could forget the hilarious and funky performance of “Jump In The Line?”
