Kooky Vampira Gyrations

Every movie, he did– had kind of a morbid-slant to it, wouldn’t you think?

Yes, and I could be talking about no one else than Tim Burton, who directed Beetlejuice and also “Ed Wood”, a biopic about “The World’s Worst Director” as it was all fiendish plots, cardboard graveyards, rubber octopus contraptions, flying saucers dangling on fishing-line, and the most bizarre assortment of “stock footage” ever spliced-into a feature, to save on “special fx”. 227 more words

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO EDWARD D. WOOD, JR!

Last year, Ed Wood‘s Plan 9 From Outer Space(1959) saw its Blu-ray release; posthumously, Ed is thoroughly enjoying his last laugh.

My love affair with Tim Burton films began when I was 8 years old.  My teenage siblings allowed me to watch Beetlejuice – I’m pretty sure they shouldn’t have at that age!- and I instantly fell in love with its unique gothic-inspired look, its wit, its heart and, of course, the Saint-Saens-like soundtrack of Danny Elfman.  1,077 more words
