This was a funny clip that appeared only in the video-version of “Gremlins 2: The New Batch” as a kind of “break”, a surreal interlude as the monsters seemed to be commenting, “outside of the movie” even while the story continued.
It would be interesting, to have “a movie”, inside a movie as a big joke about the film, “Beetlejuice 2” is how wretched, the birthing process of a sequel would be– from script-meetings among the intergalactic movie-heads of state, dressed in foam-rubber costumes like evil overlords of Warner Bros. They would be narrating the action, or bridging the scenes, together with off-screen commentary as key details would be reversed like live editing revisions. . . . . self-kidding the audience of how wretched this movie is, like the nature of most reboots and sequels..
A crowd of anticipating Beetlejuice fans show-up at the premier of a movie, “Beetlejuice Returns” that hasn’t been made, yet as the star is nowhere, to be seen. And how the action, follows him “in another frame” as his random adventures coalesce together, to form an intricate-plot that more fully blooms, by implication of his wandering interest on a day-to-day level that eventually snowballs into “saving the universe”.
The movie would have a lot of “Beetlejuice” featured, about 50/50 with Lydia off on her own death-rock local cable access program and how their fates, intertwine– like a sacred “undead link” between the strange & unusual. As Beetlejuice becomes more solid, more corporeal, Lydia begins “to fade-out of the universe” and take-on more ghostly qualities as she visits the after-life and has dreams and hallucinations– a perfect part for “a musical bridge” with classic death-rock bands and CGI interludes.
You can’t fault-me on “lack of originality”, as this film would become a new landmark in comedy and rock-the-house down. Plenty of commissions from licensed t-shirts, as they would be featured in the movie like product-placement spots and later, sold to the outside consumer-market as we “write our own ticket”.
