Let Your Geek Sideshow presents… Then & Now– a pop culture podcast!

This week, jump in the line and join us as we explore the afterlife and legacy of Tim Burton’s Ghost with the Most. From helping some newly-deads to haunting an entire home, he has become an icon of horror-comedy, spawning an animated series, a stage musical, and even video games in his wake.

His name is well known, but you’d better not say it three times, or else you might find yourself terrorized by this troublesome spirit and his ghostly hijinks. For over 30 years, the freelance bio-exorcist has been bringing us laughter from the hereafter across numerous screens and even stages.

The strange and unusual story of Lydia Deetz, the Maitlands, and Beetlejuice himself teaches us not to take death so seriously, using dark comedy to balance the unseemly topics that we would rather not talk about. Through it all, the film and all its Burton-brained imagery have become an irreplaceable, iconic part of horror cinema and pop culture itself, attracting fans both new and old day after day-o.

It’s showtime! This is Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice Then & Now.
