Handbook for the Recently Deceased
Handbook for the Recently Deceased | Replica Books
4 posts | 3 to read
This book is a replica of the original Handbook for the Recently Deceased as seen in the 1988 film Beetlejuice. The cover and the first few pages of this book have been painstakingly recreated using a genuine prop which was used for filming as a reference. There were several identical Handbook props made for the film, all of which were created using a psychology textbook as a template. Since no actual content exists for the body of the rest of these pages, the remainder of this book has been cleared for you to use as a journal or sketchbook should you wish. This book consists of 200 lined pages on a cream background with title headers and numbers on each page. Perfect for any Tim Burton or 80's movie fan.

BONUS POINTS if horror is:
a) absent
b) mixed with comedy
c) more atmospheric than horrific
& potentially,
d) expressive of feminist rage

🖤 I‘ll go first:

•Practical Magic
•An American Werewolf in London
•Rosemary‘s Baby
•Shaun of the Dead
•The Babysitter
•Buffy the Vampire Slayer (though I prefer the show)
•The Lost Boys
•Hocus Pocus
•Casper (because I grew up in the 90‘s)


Kimberlone What We Do in the Shadows is a new favorite of mine! 3mo
CodyWilcox • Hocus Pocus • Nightmare Before Christmas (also a Christmas fav) • Darkness Falls • What Lies Beneath. I usually can‘t do much more scary than those. I‘m a big scaredy cat and am ok with that. 3mo
monalyisha @CodyWilcox I‘m embarrassed that I forgot Hocus Pocus! 😳 Editing right now. (Also, for some reason, my BFF‘s fam & I always watched The Nightmare Before Christmas on Thanksgiving, so it will forever be associated with that particular holiday in my mind.) Thanks for the suggestions! (edited) 3mo

Chrissyreadit Yes! I‘m trying to figure out some movies to watch and have been struggling! I had a few good responses but I needed more! 3mo
monalyisha @Chrissyreadit Same! 🦇✨ I wouldn‘t say that I‘m a “baby,” but I don‘t like being upset/disturbed just because. I‘m more into the mood & the spirit of Halloween (otherworldliness, crumbling Victorian houses, magic, folklore, — monsters, to some extent) than I am the gore & psychological trauma aspect. 3mo
Chrissyreadit @monalyisha yes! That sounds like what I‘m looking for. 🖤🖤🖤 3mo
cathipink We love the live action Addams Family movies (from the 90s)🙂 I'll try to reflect and see if I can think of some more. 3mo
monalyisha @cathipink Yes! All Christina Ricci all the time. 🖤 3mo
Clare-Dragonfly The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Addams Family movies, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, The Others 3mo
monalyisha @ChrissyReadIt I‘ve gotten a million recs on Facebook: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night; You‘re Next; Life After Beth; Trick R Treat; The Orphanage (by Guillermo del Toro); What We Do in the Shadows; Cabin in the Woods; Sleepaway Camp; Swamp Thing; Bubba Ho-Tep; Night of the Comet; The People Under the Stairs; The Monster Squad; The Stuff; The Fog (1980); C.H.U.D.; Dead Heat; The Thing; Tucker & Dale vs. Evil; Housebound. 3mo
monalyisha @ChrissyReadIt I‘ve seen some of them but I‘m including them in case they help you! A friend also suggested The Exorcism of Emily Rose but said it wasn‘t any of the things I asked for. 😅 He used the words “haunting” & “beautiful”, though, so I might try it, regardless. 3mo
Novel_Crawler Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Sweeney Todd. Sleepy Hallow. Nightmare on Elm Street (the original not the following movies). And I really liked The Witch and The Ritual on Netflix. 3mo

Endowarrior21 Yes one of the earrings broke but I will super glue it back together don‘t worry 😍 @teebe 13mo
teebe @Endowarrior21 really?! I was worried something might break when the package arrived looking a little worse for the wear but I was thinking it‘d be the mug, not the tiniest object in the box 🙈😂 But I‘m glad it‘s fixable and that you‘ve enjoyed everything! 13mo
Endowarrior21 @teebe It‘s okay 😍😁😁😁 13mo
