Tim Burton is considered one of the greatest directors of all time. And because the monsters, witches, skeletons, vampires, ghosts, death… are the essentials of the most of his movies, it’s obvious that Tim Burton is simply the best choice for a Halloween Time.

1. Beetlejuice

Horror comedy from 1988 tells a story about two ghosts, Adam (Alec Baldwin) and his wife Barbara (Geena Davis) who try to scary out the noisy family that moved in their house. After several unsuccessful attempts, they turn to the devious ghost Beetlejuice/Betelgeuse (Michael Keaton) for help…Very soon, they find out that Beetlejuice is everything else but help.

2. Edward Scissorhands

In 1990 Burton introduced us Edward. There’s probably nobody who wouldn’t know this unique man with frightened look and scissors for hands. When Peg Bogs (Dianne Wiest) stumbles upon Edward’s (Johnny Depp) abandoned manor and finds this sad stranger, in order to help, she decides to take him home and introduce him to the society. However, the residents of the suburb don’t share her sentiment for the man with huge scissorhands.

3. The Nightmare Before Christmas

A wonderful dark fantasy musical from 1993 about another bizarre creature is also another proof of Burton’s genius imagination. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, who's got bored of all that routine but when he stumbles upon Christmas Town, Jack decides to cheer himself up by some rascally idea.

He kidnaps Santa Claus and decides to change Christmas into another Halloween.

4. Sleepy Hollow

Eerie gothic horror, released in 1999, shows a young constable Ichabod Crane’s (Johnny Depp) investigation of mysterious murders in small town of Sleepy Hollow. While the residents are convinced that it’s a ghost of the Headless Horseman, sceptical Crane refuses to believe this supernatural theory…until he himself encounters Headless Horseman in personal.

5. Corpse Bride

Another animated musical introducing us Victor Van Dort, who’s life is completely twisted when he, nervous from the upcoming wedding with Victoria Evergolt, practices his vows alone in the forrest and while reciting, he puts a ring upon a finger of a corpse, considering it as an ordinary twig. After that, he’s taken by Emily, the Corpse Bride, to the Land of the Dead.

Film had a premiere in 2005.

6. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

A 2007 musical horror movie is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's 1979 musical of the same name and re-tells the story of Benjamin Barker (Johnny Depp) who, falsely accused of a crime, returns to London after 15 years under the new identity of Sweeney Todd. Sweeney is determined to revenge his stolen life by making an evil plan. He opens a barber shop, where the customers die under his razor, and waits until the man, responsible for all his suffering, sits to Sweeney’s ominous chair. Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd was nominated for the Oscar.

7. Frankenweenie
