BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE (2024) The Ghost with the Most Returns In 2nd Trailer & Poster #2

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice (2024) 2nd official trailer below and official poster #2 above released today. Only in theaters September 6, 2024. Beetlejuice Beetlejuice has been rated PG-13 for violent content, macabre and bloody images, strong language, some suggestive material and brief drug use.

Beetlejuice is back! Oscar-nominated, singular creative visionary Tim Burton and Oscar nominee and star Michael Keaton reunite for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, the long-awaited sequel to Burton’s award-winning Beetlejuice.

Keaton returns to his iconic role alongside Oscar nominee Winona Ryder (Stranger Things, Little Women) as Lydia Deetz and two-time Emmy winner Catherine O’Hara (Schitt$ Creek, The Nightmare Before Christmas) as Delia Deetz, with new cast members Justin Theroux (Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, The Leftovers), Monica Bellucci (Spectre, The Matrix films), Arthur Conti (House of the Dragon) in his feature film debut, with Emmy nominee Jenna Ortega (Wednesday, Scream VI) as Lydia’s daughter, Astrid, and Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Poor Things, At Eternity’s Gate).

Beetlejuice is back! After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return home to Winter River. Still haunted by Beetlejuice, Lydia's life is turned upside down when her rebellious teenage daughter, Astrid, discovers the mysterious model of the town in the attic and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened. With trouble brewing in both realms, it's only a matter of time until someone says Beetlejuice's name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem.

Burton, a genre unto himself, directs from a screenplay by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (Wednesday), story by Gough & Millar and Seth Grahame-Smith (The LEGO® Batman Movie), based on characters created by Michael McDowell & Larry Wilson. The film’s producers are Marc Toberoff, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tommy Harper and Burton, with Sara Desmond, Katterli Frauenfelder, Gough, Millar, Brad Pitt, Larry Wilson, Laurence Senelick, Pete Chiappetta, Andrew Lary, Anthony Tittanegro, Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg executive producing.

Burton’s creatives behind the scenes includes director of photography Haris Zambarloukos (Meg 2: The Trench, Murder on the Orient Express); such previous and frequent collaborators as production designer Mark Scruton (Wednesday), editor Jay Prychidny (Wednesday), Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sleepy Hollow), Oscar-winning creature effects and special makeup FX creative supervisor Neal Scanlan (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman (Big Fish, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman); and Oscar-winning hair and makeup designer Christine Blundell (Topsy-Turvy).

A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will be released only in theaters and IMAX on September 6, 2024 nationwide, and internationally beginning 4 September 2024. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Watch HALLOWEEN: RESURRECTION (2002) Full Film Free Now on PLUTO TV + Workprint, Reviews

Halloween: Resurrection is a 2002 American slasher film directed by Rick Rosenthal, who had also directed Halloween II in 1981. Larry Brand and Sean Hood devised the screenplay. The film is a direct sequel to Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later and the eighth installment overall in the Halloween franchise. It stars Busta Rhymes, Bianca Kajlich, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Ryan Merriman, Sean Patrick Thomas, Tyra Banks and Jamie Lee Curtis, with Brad Loree as the primary villain Michael Myers. This was the final installment of the H20 timeline of the Halloween franchise, which had just been rebooted with the previous film in 1998, before it was rebooted again in 2007 and again in 2018. The film follows Myers continuing his murderous rampage in his hometown of Haddonfield when his childhood house is used for a live internet horror show.

IMDb.com SYNOSPIS: Three years after he last terrorized his sister, Michael Myers confronts her again, before traveling to Haddonfield to deal with the cast and crew of a reality show which is being broadcast from his old home.

IMDb.com STORYLINE: Serial Killer Michael Myers is not finished with Laurie Strode, and their rivalry finally comes to an end. But is this the last we see of Myers? Freddie Harris and Nora Winston are reality programmers at DangerTainment, and are planning to send a group of 6 thrill-seeking teenagers into the childhood home of Myers. Cameras are placed all over the house and no one can get out of the house... and then Michael arrives home!

RELEASE: Halloween: Resurrection was released on this day July 12, 2002, and was critically panned, with many considering it an unnecessary sequel to Halloween H20. Many critics have deemed it to be one of the worst films in the Halloween franchise. The film also underperformed at the box office, only grossing $37.6 million worldwide against a $15 million budget. Although another sequel was planned to follow Resurrection, the next film in the franchise became Halloween, a 2007 remake directed by Rob Zombie.

MUSIC: The score for Halloween: Resurrection was composed by Danny Lux. The score incorporates electro-acoustic instrumentation with roots in synthesizer-heavy scores of the early 1980s. The film also features several rap and hip-hop songs. In direct contrast to general critical reviews of the film, some assessments of its sound and theme music have been praising. For example, critic Steve Newton complimented the film's "creepy" and "unsettling" revival of the original iconic theme, while criticizing the film itself, as well as the rap tracks included.

HOME MEDIA: Halloween: Resurrection was released on VHS and DVD on December 10, 2002, which includes a web cam special using as found footage featuring the film's characters are set inside of Michael Myers' haunted house with alternate and deleted scenes...read more at wikipedia.org

JACK-O's REVIEW: When I first watched this I hated what they did with Laurie Strode in the begining and also hated they changed the ending of H20 but I acutally liked the rest of the film. Though at first I found Busta Ryhmes and Tyra Banks cringy I now enjoy rewatching and accept the whole film and I love that line "Trick or Treat Motha Fucka!"

A Summer Monstervison Double Feature Night:

You can't keep a good zombie down. MonsterVision offers skeptical viewers clear proof in the form of The Return of the Living Dead, a film that manages the tricky task of being both funny and scary. That's "living dead" as in Night of the Living Dead (NOTLD if you please) and "return" as in "not much to do with the first but it's a catchy title." We'll draw the connections between the two films after catching our collective breaths a bit.

Until then how about a plot synopsis? We heard you all panting and pleading, "Please please fill us in." So here ya go: It seems that a big shark, no wait. There's a second-rate boxer who wants a shot at the top -- darn, that's not it either. Ok, zombies. They return. Basically, we've got a couple of working class stiffs (haha, we made a pun) employed at a Kentucky medical supply house. Unknown to them, there are canisters of a toxic chemical stored nearby after a disastrous spill in Pittsburgh in the late 60s (remember NOTLD?). The canisters break open, causing some formerly deceased citizens to prowl around hissing, "More brains," like they own the darn place. Oh, did we mention the punks? Well, there are some, and punks being punks they thought a cemetery was a nice place to party. Perhaps, but not tonight... read more full transcript here!

Monstervision VHS cover by @trickhorrortreater:

Hold something back? Not us since we're really putting the "monster" into MonsterVision with a freaky big, super-nasty great white shark romping through Jaws 2. The film may be the offspring of a big-budget, almost-respectable smash hit but Jaws 2 doesn't skimp in the shocks and thrills department and we love it for that. To paraphrase Jean-Luc Godard, all you need for a movie is a hungry critter and some dumb townfolk.

When last we left sleepy seaside Amity, the town had been menaced by a predatory great white which was eventually defeated by the police chief, a grizzled sea captain and that guy from Mr. Holland's Opus. But since there's always more fish in the sea, we shouldn't be surprised to learn that the first film's shark was a sort of advance scout for bigger and meaner things. Roy Schneider is back as the police chief, still having to deal with a mayor (Murray Hamilton again) who refuses to close down the beach, apparently having slept through the first film. The shark's tougher, the chief's got bigger guns and there's a super phat, def, chillin' scene involving a helicopter. We're not being deliberately vague on the story, it's just that Jaws 2's austere string of shark attacks and the men who stop them borders on non-narrative experimental film. Hey, who says MonsterVision lacks aesthetic sensibilities?...read more full transcript here!

Reviews:

"Perhaps 138 minutes is a wildly inflated run time for a movie about a murderous, cannibalistic clown, but there isn't a wasted bucket of blood [...] As grimy, gnarly video nasties go, Terrifier 2 is the stuff. It has no more substance than it needs. It’s very successful at what it wants to be." B+ KibsReviews.blogspot.com

"It is too long, being about an hour longer than the first film [...] there are supernatural things throughout, but there’s never any rules established. I know that filmmakers like to keep audiences guessing, but the guessing game is more fun if we have clues to go on [...] Still 8/10 for the pure horror, despite those reservations." BA Harrison at imdb.com

"Bloated but brilliant in places, Terrifier 2 certainly hits home when it comes to its core demographic targeted audience providing them with insanely imaginative kills and gore but the runtime becomes the film’s downfall as other subplots and storylines drag the film on unnecessarily and in the end, it all becomes a little boring." ★★★, BackToTheMovies.com

"While I do enjoy the advances in the violence and the makeup, as well as the triumphant return of David Howard Thornton as Art the Clown – the weak script and self-indulgent length, make for a massacre you have to embrace in chunks rather than all at once." Cinefied.com

"It felt like an old H.G. Lewis film, turned up to 11 [...] Terrifier 2 is best when it does what we are here to see: big, bloody murder. But the attempt at a story is just atrocious. Terrifier 2 tries to be bigger and better than its predecessor when really, we just wanted more of the same." B- Collider.com

"It is so rare for a sequel to, dare I say it, be superior to the original movie, but Damien Leone manages to pull that off. With an additional almost 45 minutes of run time, there was some initial fear that Terrifier 2 was going to drag and not deliver on the promise of madness and insanity that fans were hoping for. However, there is so much to enjoy and indulge in as this sequel fires on all cylinders." ElementsOfMadness.com

"Hugely gory and tons of nasty overkill of the women. One of the first female deaths is unconscionable in its protracted violence. The guy playing Art is a delight and I liked the creepy clown girl. Plus it was fun when it went all mystical at the end. But still 2 hours 20 minutes is insanity for a killer clown movie." Geek Goddesses at letterboxd.com

"Ok, so the plot mechanics are flimsy. For example, our baddy still has no apparent motivation and attempts to personalise the conflict are vague to the point of self-parody. But then the reason people watch these movies isn't the intricate plotting – it’s because they want to see a slasher. And they won’t be disappointed." ★★★★, HorrorCultFilms.com

"Terrifier 2 is better than the first in nearly every imaginable way. Bigger, nastier, and more fun, each creative death sequence goes preposterously over-the-top [...] There were times when I could barely believe what I was seeing. I have to say I am in awe of the practical effects work that went into this project." JoshAtTheMovies.com

"In a nutshell: All your Halloweens have come at once. Damien Leone’s 140-minute Art the Clown epic is a splatter slasher full of absolutely insane levels of butchery realised with incredible practical effects. Over the top, out of control and off the rails, Terrifier 2 is totally wild!" ★★★★★, LiveForFilms.com

" …there’s a commendably high kill count, and Terrifier 2 isn't afraid to kill off supporting characters that you might have assumed would make it to the final credits. Speaking of which, stick around for a lengthy post-credits sequence that is truly deranged, ending the film with a belter of a final image. Thornton is clearly the main attraction of Terrifier 2, but LaVera and Fullam both do terrific work…" ★★★, Nerdly.co.uk

"The body count is higher and the absurdity of some kills is embraced with some gorgeous practical special effects. Fans of the first will find Terrifier 2 well worth the wait and delivers fan service to those who love the extreme." NightmarishConjurings.com

"Terrifier 2 works best as an exercise in macabre style; Leone repeatedly demonstrates that he knows his way around a creepy scene, with moody and colorful cinematography by George Steuber and an appropriate, John Carpenter-esque synth-and-piano score by Paul Wiley, plus fine use of locations, especially at the lengthy climax. It’s also a strong showcase for Thornton…" Rue-Morgue.com

" …the core audience will get precisely what they came to see. Terrifier 2’s kills repeatedly up the ante, delivering some of the most horrific gore sequences ever seen in a horror film. And, like much of Terrifier 2, it goes on and on, eventually reaching an astonishing crescendo of violence. Somehow there’s another hour or so after that too, repetition eventually blunting Art’s mean little thrills." ★★★, StarburstMagazine.com

" …as effective as the individual kills are, Terrifier 2 goes on for way too long and starts to drag [...] Leone was smart enough to keep the original film down to a fast eighty minutes and it worked almost perfectly [...] Trimmed down to an hour and three quarters, Terrifier 2 would have been another triumph. Instead, it overstays its welcome and collapses under its own weight…" ★★★, VoicesFromTheBalcony.com
