Corpse Bride
2005
***½
Director: Tim Burton, Mike Johnson
Cast: Johnny Depp, Emily Watson, Helena Bonham-Carter, Albert Finney

Two families in Victorian England have arranged a marriage that serves all parties, but the shy groom accidentally awakens a corpse bride and is swooped to the land of the dead. This wonderful looking digital stop motion animation is a companion piece to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Another enjoyable dark comedy with familiar looking stick characters, but, once again, not a total success.
