Remaking Beetlejuice: My Casting Choices

Welcome to Day 12 of Spooky Season!! For this year, I asked one of my favorite horror movie groups, Room 237, to help me choose 2 movies for my remake series. The first one they chose was Beetlejuice! This one made me very nervous because Beetlejuice had so many iconic performances that I’m not sure could be matched… but I’m still pretty happy with my choices and I hope you enjoy them too! (NOTE: Annie McEnroe’s age wasn’t available, so I had to guess the age range for her character, Jane Butterfield.) (REMINDER: this is just hypothetical fun! I love and respect everyone mentioned and this series isn’t meant to tear anyone down or be disrespectful!!)
