‘Documentary for the Recently Deceased’ Dives Into the Making of Beetlejuice!
Written by Patti Pauley
What’s that you say? Make my millennium? Fine. A making of Beetlejuice documentary is on its way folks!
Now jump in the line, rock your body in time.
Just a year shy of Tim Burton’s majestic film celebrating its 30th anniversary, super BeetleGeuse fan Fred China has set up an IndieGoGo campaign in an effort to bring us the ultimate documentary on our favorite ghost with the most’s 1988 movie entitled, Documentary for the Recently Deceased.
The two-hour retrospective, fan-funded documentary will explore the making of this fan-favorite horror-comedy with visits to filming locations plus never before seen set photos, videos, deleted scenes, cast and crew interviews, and a Beetlejuice alternate ending.
Per the IndieGoGo campaign:
“Documentary for the Recently Deceased” will describe all the stages of production from the film’s creation to its release. You will get an exclusive view behind the scenes through interviews with the people who took part in the film, especially the magicians from the SFX department who will share their secret insight on the project.
As with any IndieGoGo campaign, the makers behind this super cool looking fan doc are offering some perks for backers willing to contribute towards the film’s ultimate goal of $23,000. At the time of this article, close to $7,000 has been raised thus far, and besides the fact the end reward of a goddamn Beetlejuice documentary is a reward in itself, the backer perks are pretty wicked too guys.
Along with such honors as a producer credit and digital downloads of the film once released, the Documentary for the Recently Deceased has banded together with artists to make exclusive merch for the film that is extremely limited and quite, frankly bad-ass.
And hey, if you act now, you get a free demon possession with every dollar you donate!
Documentary for the Recently Deceased will be released sometime in 2018. Stay tuned for more updates!
