Beetlejuice has everything you could ever want in a Halloween movie: the undead, scary sandworms, and, of course, that devious titular character whose name you’d rather not say out loud three times. But if you enjoy repeating all of your favorite lines from the movie, using some Beetlejuice quotes for Instagram captions is the way to go. With a bunch of fall activities on the agenda, it’s helpful to have some captions ready to make posting your pics easier than ever. Luckily, there’s a Beetlejuice quote that can work for just about any photo you have saved in your drafts.

For example, if you and your roomies have a backyard fall movie night on the books, you might want to use the iconic “It’s showtime” quote to caption your photo of your screen and projector setup. And while you’re at it, you can add some Beetlejuice-esque snacks to the menu like black and white Zebra popcorn to match Betelgeuse’s pinstripe suit (because what’s a movie night without some popcorn?). You can serve up some Beetlejuice-inspired cocktails as well, paired with sandworm cupcakes, and snap enough foodie pics to make all your followers drool with ghoulish delight.

When the temperature drops outside, you can channel your inner Lydia Deetz by rocking some cool all-black outfits. Throw on your favorite dark oversized sweater and combat boots, and use one of her quotes from the film to caption your #OOTD post. Of course, if you’re feeling extra mischievous, you can always gamble with a “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice” caption or even post an Instagram Reel of you dancing around to "Day-O" at your Halloween party.

Below, find 45 Beetlejuice quotes for a caption with just the right spirit. Though, just know, you’ve been forewarned that something wicked could be coming your way.
