Corpse Bride is the perfect movie for getting into the Halloween Spirit

This Tim Burton film is great to put on while hanging out with family or friends
Corpse Bride is a perfect movie that gives halloween vibes

Corpse Bride, released in 2005, is a great movie to watch with family and friends during the month of Halloween. The film was a stop motion set in the Victorian era with unique characters. Tim Burton — in the majority of his films — is known for the style of characters appearing to be half dead. Corpse Bride is a great example of this. 

One of the many aspects I enjoy in this film is the simplicity of the plot. It follows the main character Victor, as he is set for an arranged marriage until Emily comes along. Emily was tangled within Victor’s unwanted love-life and ends up interrupting the original goal of the arranged marriage. Altogether, it is very easy to follow, creating the perfect option for a background movie while hanging out with friends.

Throughout the film, there are catchy songs that allow for a fun and interesting watch. My personal favorite is “Tears to Shed” in which Emily, who is dead through a chain of events, becomes Victor’s bride by accident. She was then upset and her friends pointed out the best strategy to become a perfect wife.

The movie had a lot of beautiful cinematic elements. The main color palette was darker colors: shades of black and gray, with subtle hints of blue as well. It contained spooky Halloween vibes, making it the perfect movie to revisit during this holiday.

This is the perfect background movie while studying or multitasking. It’s very easy to follow, making it nice to watch with friends while engaging in fun activities like baking or painting.

Overall, this is the perfect festive and fun movie to watch while getting into the Halloween spirit.

I rate this movie a 10/10
