Beetlejuice is one of those rare movies beloved by both children and adults. But there are some Beetlejuice scenes you might have never realized were extremely twisted. While viewers can enjoy the movie as a darkly whimsical farce and nothing more, it's difficult to deny that Beetlejuice had scores of dark and complex undercurrents. These scenes that may have majorly warped some of the younger minds in the audience could have raised a lot of questions - if only the film weren't so damn fun to watch.

Beetlejuice tells the story of Adam and Barbara Maitland, a young, recently deceased couple who haunt their former home to scare away the new owners, the Deetz family. Aiding - and complicating - their efforts is another ghost, Betelgeuse/Beetlejuice, a sassy self-proclaimed "bio-exorcist" who also upends the Deetzes' lives. Directed by Tim Burton, this macabre comedy stars Geena Davis, Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder, Catherine O'Hara, and, in the title role, Michael Keaton - and there are some wild behind-the-scenes stories from Beetlejuice's production days.
