Nothing says Merry Christmas like a wooden pickle. Believe it or not,
that gift had something in common with the gift that was given to the Kid (Brett Kelly), Put some thought into this one and tell us how the two were alike.

Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

Troubled by the living? Is death a problem and not the solution? Unhappy with eternity? Call Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton) or the name that was printed on the flyer. Once is enough for us, as long as you pronounce it correctly.
2. In our game of Life (Death and the Great Beyond), players draw from a stack of cards that includes free intercessions, class-one D-90 to be precise, which can be traded away for other necessities, if one so chooses. How many were the Maitlands (Alec Baldwin & Geena Davis) entitled to?

3. Juno's (Sylvia Sidney) job, as she explained it to the Maitlands, was to evaluate individual cases and determine if help was needed, deserved and __________, which she wasn't.

4. Try to find your way around in the dark without bumping into anything the next time the lights go out. That's what it must have felt like for Adam when his headless body raced Delia (Catherine O'Hara) to the attic. Did he bump into anything along the way?

5. Ghosties, what did we tell you to do if someone tries to get into a room you're hiding in? That's right, draw a door (and a handle) on a wall, but that will only work if you also remember to do this.

6. Beware of ghosts bearing gifts and late-night snacks. Our little friend was eaten in chapter 13 after he was lured with a candy bar. The
Beetlejuice
(1) Betelgeuse, rhymes with thrice. That's what it took to summon the ghost with the most. (2) Three if they spent 125 years in their old house. They're lucky they got that many considering Juno's workload. (3) Available (4) He did.  (5) Knock three times. That's what the Maitlands did when Lydia used a skeleton key to get into the attic. (6) B,E,L,J, I & C. Only T and U are in the word Zagnut.

(7) She thought she could see dead people because she was strange and unusual. What that had to do with live people ignoring weird folks, we don't know. (8) The words "Here lies Betegeuse" were written in fluorescent red paint and there was a flashing neon sign with his name on it that pointed towards his grave.  (9) Adam's eyes popped up on his fingers. Barbara made her eyes reappear on her tongue. (10) The paint on your walls would peel and some wild creature would try to kill you. (11) He didn't see anything, the lights went out. That was followed by a clasp of thunder (12) White penny-loafers, a maroon tuxedo and matching bowtie and a white ruffled, dress shirt

Bad Santa
They had some blood on them
bastard! What letters would you need if you tried to spell Beetlejuice's name by rearranging pieces of the wrapper?

7. Ever wonder why some people see ghosts and others do not. We always thought it had more to do with a ghost letting itself be seen. According to the handbook, the living ignored people like Lydia (Winona Ryder). That wouldn't explain how or why she was able to see the Maitlands, but she made sense of it, somehow. See if you can.

8. Most people would like to be remembered long after their gone. What your final resting place looks like would be one way to go, so to speak. What made Beetlejuice's stand out from the rest, and so easy to find?

9. The answer to that question leads us to this one. When Juno asked the Maitland's for a demonstration of how they planned to scare the Deitzs out of their home, they both made something disappear and then reappear someplace else. In Adam's case, they also multiplied.

10. Say it with us, "They're not here, anymore." Anything happen? We didn't think so. Charles (Jeffrey Jones) joked that something
did every time Lydia uttered those words. What would you see if the same thing happened to you?

11. Séance anyone? It takes a lot more than an incantation to summon a ghost. What you really need is something they want and even then, it doesn't always work. What did Ortho (Glen Shadix) see and/or hear after he uttered the words, "Let now the dead come alive"?

12. Did you get your invitation to our once-in-a-dead-time Beetlejuice Halloween Bash? If you did and you plan on coming as the ghost with the most and you want to stand out, show up at the party wearing what he wore to his wedding. What did that crazy get-up consist of?
