Catherine O'Hara isn’t here for the hate when it comes to the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel.

“If people don’t like it, then f–k them,” O'Hara, 70, told the crowd before new footage of the film was unveiled at CinemaCon on Tuesday, April 9, via Entertainment Weekly.

The Canadian actress added that the film, titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, will have some similarities to the original 1988 cult classic, saying people can expect to see both scary and funny moments throughout.

O'Hara was joined at the event by director Tim Burton and some of her castmates including Michael Keaton, Justin Theroux, Monica Bellucci and Willem Dafoe who couldn’t help but gush about the movie.

“I’ll tell you this, it’s really f–king good,” Keeton, 72, exclaimed to the audience. “This cast is so good. Everyone is so friggin’ funny. It’s unbelievable how funny these guys are. I was very nervous to see if we could pull it off again, but every day got more and more fun.”
