Short Film Of The Day: Tim Burton’s ‘Vincent’

Why Watch? Early Tim Burton, late Vincent Price, and a stop-motion nursery rhyme for the gruesome ones.

This 1982 team-up between Burton and Price was one of the director’s last short films before landing the directing gig for Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and going down the path we all know he followed. It came 11 years before The Nightmare Before Christmas, but the tones and design concepts are all there (just no Henry Selick).

Instead of a skeletal hero, it’s a little boy who wants to turn his dog into a zombie.

What does it cost? Just 6 minutes of your time.

Check out Vincent for yourself:
