Where Is Beetlejuice filmed?
All of you must be shocked to know that the house in the movie was not actually a real house at all. It was a temporary facade that was erected specifically for the shooting of the film. Also, the location shown in the movie was Connecticut but where the shooting is done is in East Corinth, Vermont. The walls were tilted up, and the roof was, in actuality, a painted canvas scrim. All the other structural things visible in the house were either inflated or were illusions. The bridge in the movie was also built for the movie, and the road didn’t even exist. It is even more strange that not even one shot was within the house. All the interiors of the Beetlejuice were filmed at the Culver Studios in Culver City, California.

Barbara and Adam Maitland in Connecticut faced an accident while returning from a trip to the town. After returning home, they found that they were actually deceased with the help of the book the Handbook for the Recently Deceased. They couldn’t even leave the house out of fear as they were getting surrounded by enormous sandworms as they attempted to escape. The Deetz family arrives as the new owners of their house, which comprised Charles, his wife Delia, and goth daughter Lydia. With the help of Otho, the interior designer, the house was renovated.
The Handbook led Maitlands to the afterlife world where their caseworker, Juno, tells them that they have to stay in the house for the next one hundred and twenty-five years. Nobody except Lydia in the family could see them. The attempts of the Maitlands to scare the Deetz failed. Thus against Juno, they contacted Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice), a freelance bio-exorcist, to help them.
However, he offended Maitlands, but it was too late to stop him. Charles pitched Maxie to make the town a tourist place because of the supernatural scenario, but Maxie wanted proof. Otho then summons the Maitlands by their wedding dresses, but they started decaying as instead Otho unwittingly performed an exorcism. Betelguese agreed to save them only if Lydia married him. But the Maitlands intervened when he was marrying her after Betelguese saved them.
In the end, the Maitlands and Deetz agreed to live together happily. And Betelguese got stuck in the afterlife waiting room.
