After Tim Burton made his phenomenally successful Batman movie, he had his choice of personal projects, including a Batman sequel and a Beetlejuice sequel, but he chose this deeply personal story based on a sketch he had drawn as a withdrawn teenager; of a thin, solemn man with what looked like scissors for hands.

Enlisting the help of screenwriter Caroline Thompson, together they would craft the ultimate gothic fairy-tale, based on classic Universal monster movies where the monster is the purest, innocent soul; as well as a beautiful Christmas movie, filmed on location in the scorching Florida suburb of Carpenters Run.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Edward Scissorhands !
