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. Though, you don’t mind repeating all of your favorite lines from the movie out loud, which is why using some of those Beetlejuice quotes for Instagram captions is the right way to go. With a bunch of fall activities on the agenda, it’s helpful to have some captions ready to go to make posting your snaps easier than ever. Luckily, there’s a Beetlejuice quote that can work for just about any snap you have saved in your drafts.

If you and your roomies have a backyard fall movie night in the books, you might want to use the iconic, “It’s showtime,” quote to caption your photo of your screen and projector setup. Add some Beetlejuice-esque snacks to the menu like black and white Zebra popcorn to match Beetlejuice’s pinstripe suit, because what’s a movie night without some popcorn? Serve up some Lydia and Beetlejuice-inspired cocktails (if you’re 21 or up) as well, paired with sandworm cupcakes. Snap enough foodie pics to make all your followers drool with ghoulish delight.

When the temperature drops outside, channel your inner Lydia Deetz by rocking some cool all-black outfits. While wearing your fave dark oversized sweaters and combat boots, use one of her teen quotes from the film to caption your #OOTD post. You can even post a Boomerang of you dancing around to "Day-O" at your Halloween party and use any of these 23 Beetlejuice quotes that has just the right spirit.

Whatever you plan on doing this fall, think of this list as your very own Beetlejuice Handbook for the Recently Deceased. Let it guide you to Insta greatness with just the right words to say on all your festive snaps and selfies.
