This sleeper hit, a sweetly bonkers comedy fantasy about ghosts uneasily playing house with humans, confirmed Burton as a creative genius and Ryder as a piquant talent. Playing a goth teen caught in the middle, she holds her own with a cast including Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones (as her folks), Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis (as a nice young dead couple), and, of course, Michael Keaton as the berserk titular poltergeist.
