Abandoned mutant baby Danny DeVito grows up to be Gotham City's formidable villain The Penguin, one of several opponents Michael Keaton has to face in Tim Burton's second Batman movie.

BEETLEJUICE
1988, Warner Bros., 92 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton

Yuppies Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O’Hara move into a new home only to find that it’s haunted by a ghost couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) with no intention of letting the new inhabitants stay. Their solution: the obnoxious miniature exorcist of the title, a hilarious comic creation played with gusto by Michael Keaton. In this, the first of Keaton’s collaborations with Tim Burton, the actor and director let their imaginations and enthusiasm run rampant to create a horror-comedy classic.
