"I'm feeling a little, ooh, anxious if you know what I mean. It's been about six hundred years after all. I wonder where a guy, an everyday Joe like myself, can find a little action..."

Below is the synopsis of "Beetlejuice," per IMDb.

When a recently-deceased ghost couple find their now-vacant home invaded by an obnoxious family, they hire a sleazy ghost who gets rid of humans to help them.

Beetlejuice is one of Michael Keaton's most iconic roles. He starred in the dark comedy-fantasy film as the sleazy, grotesque, but laugh-out-loud funny ghost—making a complete transformation. If you call his name three times, he'll appear in the outer-world and wreak havoc around him. That's what we love about the character, and that's what makes this classic so darn fun. "Beetlejuice" made $73 million domestically at the box office and holds 83 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes

"The light concealing cream goes on first. Then you blend, and blend, and blend. Blending is the secret."

Below is the synopsis of "Edward Scissorhands," per IMDb.

A gentle man, with scissors for hands, is brought into a new community after living in isolation.

Edward Scissorhands is one of Johnny Depp's breakout roles—starting a trend for the actor to take on the weirdest of characters in his collaborations with Burton. The film centers around an artificial, gothic-looking man who is taken in by a suburban family and falls in love with their daughter. His eponymous scissorhands help him become a celebrity until he is accused of a crime. The film continued Burton's trend of darker, gothic-styled films and has gone on to become a cult classic. "Edward Scissorhands" made over $86 million globally and holds a fresh rating of 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes
