Tim Burton's ghoulish romance is brought to, er, life by stop-motion king Henry Selick (Coraline). A cross between The Nightmare Before Christmas and Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride tells of a hapless Victorian chap (voiced by Burton's bud Johnny Depp) who finds himself married to an interesting lady called Emily (Helena Bonham Carter). Unfortunately, not only is she the wrong fiancee, she's also dead. Burton and Selick's gloriously animated tale chills and enchants with gravefuls of gallows humour and a clutch of dark ditties from Danny Elfman.
