Thursday's Ways Not To Die

Beetlejuice (1988)

One of the many, many joys of Beetlejuice to me was always how sublimely ridiculous the deaths of Adam and Barbara were. A covered bridge and a fidgety terrier*... lead to TERROR! And that look on Alec Baldwin's face as the dog jumps off the board is PRICELESS.

You know that dog is still out there, its reign of terror unabated. Beware! Beware the terrier of death!

* I'm like 70% sure that's a terrier of some sort;
if somebody wants to tell me exactly what kind of dog it is,
take it to the comments!

OMG, I love that movie! And Alec Baldwin's expression: priceless. Why do so many people have issues with him anyway?
