It’s time to turn on the juice and see what shakes loose.

“Beetlejuice” is one of the funniest horror films ever made. The film celebrated its 30th anniversary in March 2018.

The moody, cartoonish 1990 film was a breakthrough for many of the crew involved.

Before he would go on to direct 1993’s stop-motion classic “Nightmare Before Christmas,” Tim Burton made a splash with this major directorial debut.

The title role earned Michael Keaton acclaim as well. The star would go on to work with Burton again on “Batman” and “Batman Returns.”

Before she became a Gen X darling in the ’90s and more recently took on the role of Joyce Byers in “Stranger Things,” Winona Ryder caught the attention of audiences with her role as Lydia Deetz in the film.

To get us in the mood for Halloween -- and celebrate Ryder’s birthday, which is Oct. 29 -- these are facts you didn’t know about “Beetlejuice.”
