Overview

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 in which everyone gets what he or she deserves? Building on their past productive relationship (EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, ED WOOD), Tim Burton and Johnny Depp create a colorful 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 Burton's twisted mind.

Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's warped and wonderfully effervescent....Burton evokes a darkly erotic obsession that recalls Edgar Allan Poe and Hitchcock's VERTIGO." - 09/22/2005 Rolling Stone, p.115


"As an achievement in macabre visual wizardry, TIM BURTON'S CORPSE BRIDE has to reckoned some sort of marvel....A sculpted musical dreamscape of kiddie-gothic expressionist design." -- Grade: B - 09/23/2005 Entertainment Weekly, p.62


"The visuals are dazzling and the characters vividly rendered in caricature fashion. Danny Elfman's score may be his best yet, with songs that are witty and melodic." - 09/16/2005 USA Today, p.6E


"The new film showcases the subtle effects the technique can manage, with texture and detail, lighting and costuming still beyond anything computers can achieve..." - 11/01/2005 Sight and Sound, p.56


5 stars out of 5 -- "A return to form for Tim Burton....A bravura, tag-along triumph in its own right." - 03/01/2006 Uncut, p.132


"[With] a few moments of graceful, melancholy lyricism rare for any kind of movie, let alone an animated one." - 03/01/2006 Premiere, p.108
