Ask The Ghost Host

I'm your host... Your ghost host

0 notes

Anonymous asked: Hayden smiles even more, quietly stating his thank yous as he comes in, gripping the strap of his messenger bag while his smile slowly fades as he follows the Host. "If possible, I would be happy to help out around the Mansion in any way needed," he states while gazing at Waddles.

"It’s appreciated." He smiled, his lips cockeyed from his scar. "But chores can wait for eternity. Tell me, lad, what are your interests? What would you like to do with your time here?"

Some facts about Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice:
Though he spent two weeks filming with only 17.5 minutes of screen-time, this is, reportedly, Michael Keaton’s favorite film role.
The film’s original script was a horror film involving Cathy, a younger sister of Winona Ryder’s character, Lydia, being the only one able to see the Maitlands. In this script, Beetlejuice’s goal was to kill the Deetz family rather than scare them away.
The voice over the PA system announcing “Flight 409 arriving at Gate 3” when Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis’s characters are in Juno’s office refers to the United Airlines flight that mysteriously crashed into a mountain over Wyoming in 1955.
Although all of the dead in the waiting room and in the office are seen as they were when they died, the Maitland’s appear normal, as Tim Burton thought it would be too uncomfortable to keep them wet throughout the film.
The studio disliked the name “Beetlejuice” for the title of the film, wanting to call it “House Ghosts.” 
When Glenn Shadix, who played Otho, died in 2010, the last song to be played at his memorial service was “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” which was memorably used in the dinner scene.
Lydia’s bright-red wedding dress may be a point at the old rhyme, “Married in red, better off dead.”
According to Otho, those who commit suicide become “civil servants” in the afterlife. This is confirmed by Patrice Martinez’s character, Miss Argentina, who serves as the receptionist of Sylvia Sidney’s character Juno’s office: she had apparently slit her wrists.
The horrifying face Beetlejuice shows to Adam and Barbara was originally going to be shown, but was ultimately left unused. 
Several methods of death are shown in Juno’s office and waiting room: a camper bitten by a rattlesnake, a diner choking on what looks like a chicken bone, a surfer attacked by a shark, a girl who was cut in half, and a smoking burn victim. Other methods of suicide are also included.
Due to its success, a sequel for Beetlejuice was planned, but abandoned when Tim Burton took on the Batman movies.
Sam Kinison, Dudley Moore, and Sammy Davis Jr. were all considered for the role of Beetlejuice.
Though Angelica Huston was going to be the original Delia, when she became ill, Catherine O’Hara took over. There, she met her future husband, Bo Welch.
A toy line featuring Beetlejuice, Otho, Adam, and the shrunken-head man was released in conjunction with the film.
Geena Davis was originally the only actor committed to the project: Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, and Sylvia Sidney all said no at least once.
Tim Burton described the character Beetlejuice as “having lived in every time period but no time period.” It was then that Keaton shaped the character into an entity wearing a shock hairdo, mold makeup, and large teeth.
The number three is implemented several times throughout the film: commands must be said three times, you must knock three times on the door to the afterlife, and the number of first class intercessions allotted is three.
Juliette Lewis, Lori Loughlin, Diane Lane, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Justine Bateman, Molly Ringwald, and Jennifer Connelly were all considered for the role of Lydia.
Beetlejuice’s name is spoken just 15 times throughout the film: eight time by Barbara, twice by Juno, and five times by Lydia.

Anonymous asked: A young, teenage male ghost knocks on the door to the Mansion, just before a tour is supposed to start. "Good afternoon sir. My name is Hayden Turner. I sent in my letter of application a few weeks ago and received a letter just today, accepting me. May I come in? If it helps in any way, I died defending a classmate during a school shooting." He seems polite and appears to have died recently, yet there is a small smile on his face, although someone might easily label him as a class clown.

Bowing, the Host gestured for the teenager to step in. The doors shut without a touch. “Ah, yes… Our new number… Nine-hundred and ninety-nine. You arrived just as Ms. Burns decided to step out for a spiritual sabbatical.” Brow scrunched, he pondered the coincidence. “We never seem to reach 1,000.” He shrugged it away. “Please, follow me.” The Host was always careful not to say “walk this way.” “Walk this way” prompted others to make bad jokes. Only he was going to allow himself that terrible luxury.

"Oh…" He cast his eyes down sadly at the explanation. "My… condolences to you, good sir. Heroes are rarely long for the mortal realm, sadly." His lips twitched up into a small smile. "But I’m sure your sacrifice meant the world to those you’ve left behind."

He lead Hayden past the foyer and down a hall to a door that seemed to be snarling and breathing. The wood bowed in and out, leaving cracks at the hinges. “It’s harmless really.” He pulled a key from his coat pocket. It looked like a thin bone topped with a little skull. “Skeleton key,” he said, waggling it before he stuck it in the lock. “Welcome…” He pushed the now calm down open, revealing a cluttered office. “To the Ghost Relations Department. Step in, and we’ll find a place for you to haunt.” He shimmied past stacks of Death Certificates. Each one looked as if it was bound to topple at any second. “As you can tell, bureaucracy really isn’t my bodybag. But I have to pretend I care about the process…” He watched a duck go waddling past with several papers held in her beak. “Poor Waddle, she does her best. I’m afraid she’s a mediocre secRIPtary. Makes a mean cup of joe, though.”
