Beetlejuice Movie Poster

Beetlejuice (HBO Now) It’s showtime! That’s right everyone, it’s the “ghost with the most” streaming to your eyeholes from Tim Burton’s imaginative classic, Beetlejuice. Burton always had a bit of a strange, gothic imagination, and he pulls out the oddities and all the stops for this one. While the practical effects are fantastic, the animated effects date only a little and are still pretty scary. However, this move lives on the deadly inspiring performance of Michael Keaton. His manic energy, lewdness, and rapid-fire witticisms steal the show. It is such an oddity of a movie and yet it holds up so well and still makes you laugh, cringe, and wonder. In other words, it’s a Tim Burton film.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Poster

The Nightmare Before Christmas (Netflix) – Though not directed by Tim Burton himself, he created the characters and story while working in Disney Animation in the early 1980s. Created as a send-up to the stop-motion Christmas classics of the 1960s, Nightmare is Burton’s imagination fully realized – made with care and artistry that commands respect. Danny Elfman’s wonderful score and songs just make everything better. The stop-motion animation was revolutionary when the film was released, as there had never been a process where the camera could perform complex moves one frame at a time. Nightmare is now considered both a Halloween and Christmas classic and it is imperative that you see it if you haven’t.

The Exorcist Poster

The Exorcist (Netflix)  This classic horror film is loosely based on William Blatty’s novelization of a reported exorcism in St. Louis, MO (and I mean loosely – the actual kid was a boy, while Reagan is a girl). In any case, The Exorcist is classic for a reason, and the young priest’s spiritual journey in the film is provocative and beautiful.
