The Sanderson sisters were accused of witchcraft 300 years ago and sentenced to death. It’s Halloween 1993, and Max Dennison has lit the candle that’s supposed to resurrect the witches.

Unfortunately, after a freak event, the generally happy Maitlands, Adam and Barbara, have died. The ghostly couple returns to the realm of the living after being trapped in a weird limbo. They discover that their lavishly adorn New England mansion is occupied by the insufferable New York yuppies, Charles and Delia Deetz. Of course, sharing their cherished home with the bothersome intruders is out of the question; yet, the Maitlands’ haunting abilities are, to put it mildly, pitiful. Only the crazed, rotten-toothed veteran exorcist Beetlejuice can get rid of the unwanted visitors in those dire conditions; but, Beetlejuice has other ideas.
