In the same vein as EDWARD SCISSORHANDS and NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS Tim Burton continues to combine wholesome comedy and creepy horror with this tale of a mild-mannered Victorian gentleman Victor (Johnny Depp) who accidentally marries a mysterious corpse bride (Helena Bonham-Carter) instead of his intended Victoria (Emily Watson). Victor soon discovers that the Land of the Dead holds more fun than frights and begins to fall in love with his innocent bride. Meanwhile Victoria has been drawn into a scam of a marriage and may not escape with her life. As time runs out for everyone can there be a resolution where everyone gets what he or she deserves Building on their past productive relationship (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS ED WOOD) Tim Burton and Johnny Depp create a colourful riot of a film that revives the increasingly rare method of stop-motion animation. Over the period of 10 years that Burton worked to complete the film new techniques were created to speed the process including a new way to change the character models facial expressions by using gears in their heads. Of particular note is the lilting score by Danny Elfman another longtime Burton collaborator. Fun for adults and children CORPSE BRIDE is another welcome walk through Tim Burtons twisted mind.
