GothWatch Prime: Lydia Deetz

On the off-chance anyone was looking for recommendations, I’d have to say that Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice (1988) is pretty much the perfect Halloween movie… macabre, creepy, bawdy, colourful, silly, sweet, sharp, laugh-out-loud funny, and wholly unique. It’s also the movie … Continue reading
