1988 Certificate: 12


Tim Burton's rollicking ghost train has Michael Keaton at the helm as Betelgeuse, a crazy 'bio-exorcist' summoned from the afterlife by a recently deceased couple (Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis) who want to rid their home of its horrible new occupants. Winona Ryder is the teen-goth daughter who can see and empathise with the dead - but even she has to baulk at the sneaky Betelgeuse's indecent proposal. An otherworldly treat with visual gags to die for... and worthy winner of best makeup Oscar.
