So who is Beetlejuice and why is this '80s character still such a popular Halloween character today? In the film, Beetlejuice claims to be a bio-exorcist, who is expert ghost who masters in casting away humans in the world of the undead...sort of a reverse exorcist. But there is a more obnoxious prankster side which he describes as the“ghost with the most” at night. When Adam and Barbara discover that they have died and a new family moved into their home, they channel Beetlejuice by calling his name and then requesting his help to scare the new invading family away. Since they are too inexperienced and nice to successfully frighten the new owners, they needed the expertise of Beetle Juice who knows his job way to well and this is where the fun begins in the movie.
If you are planning to reveal your devilish side and get loose during Halloween, then wearing a Beetlejuice outfit is definitely the perfect choice for you. From head to toe, this character is truly a creepy and becoming his evil persona will give you an excuse to play pranks on your friends and colleagues at the party.
