"Beetlejuice" tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. Under its surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!
