So here’s some news that should be more pleasing. I’m still of the opinion that Beetlejuice is one of Tim Burton’s most fun films and a proper ‘making of’ documentary is long overdue. Well, a fundraising campaign was launched back in 2018 for Documentary for the Recently Deceased: The Making of Beetlejuice, and though that particular campaign was unsuccessful, the documentary seems to have been completed anyway.  A full trailer has been released and you can view it below.


The documentary will apparently cover all aspects of the Beetlejuice production: from filming in East Corinth, Vermont, to the stop motion and special effects work, including stop-motion sequences digitized in 2K especially for the occasion, as well as:

Interviews with cast and crew,
Behind the scenes photos and videos,
Rare production archives such as concept arts, blueprints,
Tour of East Corinth, Vermont,
Interviews with people of East Corinth who were there for the filming,
Meet fans that create great stuff about the movie,
Meet Props Collectors,
Meet Tom Spina, who worked on restoring the props, 30 years later,
Meet Kyle Lambert, our poster designer.

Adam F. Goldberg [The Goldbergs] produced the documentary which is currently in post-production.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
