GO!, Fri­day, 10.45pm, M ( 1988)

Tim Bur­ton ( Ed­ward Scis­sorhands, Alice in Won­der­land fame) con­cocted this odd­ball en­ter­prise that fea­tures a vir­tu­oso slot by Michael Keaton as the epony­mous evil­doer ( pic­tured), a nutty ghoul hired by a newly dead cou­ple ( Geena Davis and Alec Bald­win) de­ter­mined to drive out prospec­tors from their prized New Eng­land home. Im­bued with wry sen­si­bil­ity and high spirit, a weak story gains from smart gim­mickry. Plau­dits go to Wi­nona Ry­der as a goth – an ex­cel­lent choice of cast­ing.
