Film Review: Corpse Br evaluated by Thomas Hibbs nationwide Review OnlineSeptember 30, 2005

Predicated on A russian folktale, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride shares the design and feel of their Nightmare Before xmas, at the same time gloomy, macabre, witty, and intimate. Corpse Bride has arranged betrothal interrupted by the unexpected intervention of the forsaken, murdered bride from one other part of this grave. Strung together by musical figures, the movie is suffering from lyrical thoughtlessness and occasional unsuccessful attempts at grotesque humor. The tourist attractions here you will find the astonishing appearance of the movie plus the astonishing severity with which it requires marital vows and sacrificial love.

The visuals are stunning. The barren, gloomy, moonlit landscapes, crisply defined forms, and razor- sharp distinctions between black colored and provide that is white backdrops to your movie’s droll humor. The effect is comparable to the German Expressionist style.
