Tim Burton’s animated films are a perfect mix of horror, romance and whimsy. We like to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas every October when we carve pumpkins. Both Sally from Nightmare and the Corpse Bride herself are excellent costume inspirations. The feature length remake of Burton’s Frankenweenie short breaks my heart and maybe isn’t the best movie to watch in October when you want your heart racing, not breaking, but it fits perfectly with his fanciful love of the macabre also highlighted in Nightmare & Corpse Bride.
