Way back in 2017, we told you about a Indiegogo campaign that was launched to help fund Documentary for the Recently Deceased: The Making of Beetlejuice, a documentary that'll provide a never-before-seen look at the creation of Tim Burton’s 1988 horror-comedy classic, and while it's been a long road, the film has been completed and is currently in post-production.
This week, a brand new trailer was released that provides a three-minute snippet from the doc with the people who were on set and those who were living in the town used for Beetlejuice’s location shooting (East Corinth, Vermont).
The film will cover all the aspects of the Beetlejuice production: from filming in East Corinth, Vermont, to the stop motion and special effects work, as well as a series of exclusive interviews and rare behind the scenes archives acquired by the director Fred China over the years.
