This refreshingly flaky fantasy from director Tim Burton is a landmark supernatural comedy that ingeniously showcases monstrously zany special effects, demonic one-liners and offbeat performances. Michael Keaton (who would reunite with Burton the following year for
) is amazing as an irritatingly unstable freelance exorcist. He's called in to help recently deceased Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin rid their new home of human pests, led by Catherine O'Hara's fantastically pretentious artist whose ugly creations come to life in a particularly memorable scene. Winona Ryder also impresses in an early role as the goth stepdaughter with an affinity for the dead. Burton's marvellously imaginative view of the afterlife as a ghoulish extension of mundane earthbound problems is a visionary masterstroke crammed with wit and invention.
Recently deceased couple Adam and Barbara Maitland enlist the professional services of a hard-boiled veteran ghost to scare away the obnoxious yuppie family who have moved into their former home. Tim Burton's supernatural comedy, starring Michael Keaton, Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder, Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O'Hara.
