Bernard: Delia, you are a flake. You have always been a flake. If you insist on frightening people, do it with your sculpture.
Even though Beetlejuice is the title character, he has only 17 and a half minutes of screen time. See more...

Continuity: When Otho is calling the spirits of Barbara and Adam to return we see Barbara first, suspended above the table in her wedding gown. She "ages" so rapidly during Otho's chant that her skin shrivels and her feet curl up, causing one of her shoes to fall off onto the table. A few minutes later we see a long shot of both Barbara and Adam suspended above the table, but her shoes are both on and there is nothing on the table.
Revealing: When Barbara and Adam are digging up Beetlejuice's grave, you can see that a piece of cardboard states "FRAGILE" or something in small print which is proportional to Barbara and Adam at that time. However, the lettering should be ten times larger if the cardboard was proportional to the actual model.
Continuity: When Barbara tears the top of the wrapping paper off of the present (tube of wallpaper) Adam bought her, in following shots the way the paper is torn and the way it hangs, changes. In the very next wide shot the whole of the wrapping paper is suddenly off of the tube of wallpaper, without enough time given for Barbara to have pulled it off. In following shots Adam and Barbara kiss and cuddle on the couch, and in one shot you can see that the wrapping paper had reappeared, and is still wrapped around the tube.
Revealing: When Adam, who should have no reflection, walks out of the door to go retrace his steps, he is really clearly reflected in the big glass panel in the door. Then after Barbara pulls Adam from the SandWorm land, they walk back into the house through the same doors, and are both reflected in the glass panels of the door. So much for ghosts...
Continuity: The distance between the picture hanging on the wall and the light switch wire often changes through the movie. Look at the distance between the two when Adam walks past to throw the spider out of the window. When Barbara pokes her head into the room in the following shot to give Adam his present, the picture now hangs right beside the light switch wire
Continuity: After drawing the chalk door, Adam knocks on it three times, and then it opens. Adam then sets down the "Handbook for the Recently Deceased" and puts the piece of chalk down next to it. But later, when Lydia sneaks up into the attic, she finds the handbook, now with the piece of chalk sitting on top of the book.
Continuity: When Adam and Barbara try to scare the new residents out of their house, Barbara holds up Adam's head by the hair. He has glasses on and they are up on his nose where one would wear glasses. However, the next shot is a close-up of the head, and the glasses are down on the end of his nose.
