Number of Times Seen – Between 5-10 times (Cable in the 80’s and 21 Jan 2015)
Brief Synopsis – When their house is taken over by a new family following their tragic deaths, a couple decide to try and get rid of them any way possible.
My Take on it – I gotta admit that this movie was better and even more fun to watch in the 80’s than it was now.
The effects and jokes just don’t seem to work as well 27 years later.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Tim Burton so this doesn’t surprise me so much that I have lost some of my passion for this movie.
It’s both funny and strange to see how Alec Baldwin and Michael Keaton have changed over the years that they are almost unrecognizable. Geena Davis is young here, but still does a great job as always.
Despite not being the biggest fan of Burton, I can recognize that his vision of what the afterlife could be is quite interesting and at times very humorous to watch.
Regardless, this movie doesn’t age well and no longer feels as unique as it did at the time.
Bottom Line – Was much better during the 80’s. Now feels quite outdated. Strange seeing how both Keaton and Baldwin looked at the time. Burton’s vision of the afterworld is interesting and funny to watch but it no longer feels very special.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
