- "Whoa, Sandworms. Ya hate 'em right? I HATE 'EM MESELF!"
Role in the movieEdit
Beetleguese first appears in the movie not long after the Maitlands die. He is reading the newspaper, and he spots them, and states that they look "Nice and Stupid."
The Maitlands are then told by Juno that Beetleguese has been sleazing around in their model Cemetary latley. He is then seen capturing and presumably eating a fly.
He then is properly introduced when he is called on by the Maitlands to get the Deetzes out of their house. Beetleguese eventually does so by turning into a giant snake and tossing the Deetzes around (against the Maitlands wishes). He then spends the rest of the movie plotting to marry Lydia to escape. He vanishes the Maitlands away, but Barbara comes back with a sandworm, which swallows Beetleguese whole.
He is last seen in the Afterlife waiting room, foolishly angering a witch doctor, who then shrinks his head.
