Set in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion, animated feature follows the story of Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp), a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride, while his real bride, Victoria, waits bereft in the land of the living. Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colorful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love.

"An instant classic.  Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"A piece of genius.  Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
"The Oscar for this year's Best Animated Feature Film belongs right here.  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The film looks great - better, in fact, than many of the recent crop of computer animated motion pictures.  James Berardinelli's ReelViews
"A wondrous flight of fancy...  Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"...lively and deliriously original...  Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle

Editor's Note
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.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
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 p.115

Entertainment Weekly
"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 p.62

USA Today
"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 p.6E

Sight and Sound
"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 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 p.132

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

Rolling Stone 9 of 10
The Oscar for this year's Best Animated Feature Film belongs right here, even though the ravishing goth romance that Tim Burton has conjured up in Corpse Bride isn't strictly animated in the computer-generated sense. Burton and his co-director, Mike Johnson, use the stop-motion technique, which means taking puppets -- about a foot tall -- and painstakingly moving them half a millimeter at a time to achieve a subtlety of expression beyond the range of CGI. It takes a twelve-hour work day to produce even a second or two of usable footage. Burton used stop-motion in 1993's The Nightmare Before Christmas, but the digital improvements at his disposal now really make it sing. - Peter Travers

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
"Tim Burton's Corpse Bride" is not the macabre horror story the title suggests, but a sweet and visually lovely tale of love lost. In an era when most animated films look relentlessly bright and colorful, "Corpse Bride" creates two palettes, and not the ones we expect. - Roger Ebert
