Most Tim Burton Films Secretly Star The Same Character

by Emily Keen

The Burton theory is a popular belief amongst fans that all of Tim Burton’s moves are connected. It still holds a lot of unrevealed secrets that can help us connect the dots.

According to the theory, all of Tim Burton’s films including Frankenweenie, Vincent, Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Nightmare Before Christmas and, Corpse Bride are connected.

Tim Burton’s film “Vincent” is the first one on the list.

Vincent Malloy

Vincent (1982)Until he turned into a maniac, Vincent Malloy was a simple boy. His attempts in transforming his dog Abercrom bie into a Zombie led the dog to be given away.

And the man who adopts Abercrom bie is Victor and renames the dog Sparky.

Vincent’s wife Sally

Nightmare Before Christmas' Was Forced to Cut Joke About Tim ...Sally is not real. But Vincent claims to have murdered her by burying her alive. And later he tries to resurrect her by rebuilding her. Sally now resides in Halloween town after her death.


Post the occurrences of Frankweenie, Sparky is dead. He is buried in the pet cemetery and eventually becomes a spirit of Halloween Town. This is how he is adopted by Jack Skellington who renames him “Zero”.

This explains the glow on Zero’s nose in the afterlife.

And easter egg can be noted when Zero’s gravestone is visible while victor is making a visit to Sparky’s grave.

This points to an obvious fact that Abercrombie, Sparky, and Zero are the same. They also bear a similar facial structure.

Edgar E’ Gore

This character’s death is attributed to Sparky’s electrical shock. Once e he dies, he becomes a part of Halloween town later to be known as Wolfman.

This is when Sparky is dead for the second and last time.

Victor’s parents get him a new dog to help him forget about Sparky. The new dog is called Scraps. But eventually, Scraps too is dead. The death of his second dog pushes victor over the edge and he runs away. This is how he ends up with the Van Dorts.

After the adoption, the family forces Victor to get married to Victoria Everglot. This alliance is a part of Victoria’s parents’ plan to escape poverty.

Now if we look closely, Victor from Frankweenie and Victor from Corpse Bride bears an uncanny resemblance to one another.

While some people think it is just how Tim Burton likes his figures. But the theory suggests they are the same person.


Elsa Van Helsing

Burgemeister has another brother who is neglected by the parents. Burgemeister ends up inheriting all his parent’s fortune while his brother Finis is left to deal with poverty.


This is what leads us to the happenings of Corpse Bride when Scraps makes a comeback.

Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween Movie?

by Emily Keen

Categorizing some films is a tricky business. They are not created to explicitly fit into a particular season. For example- Die Hard being a Christmas movie has been a subject of enough debates. Just because it’s an action film, do not we can overlook the backdrop in which it is set.

Horror films are clearly meant for Halloween. Who would dare to question the tagging of Casper and Hocus Pocus as Halloween movies? They clearly have this weird and spooky vibe about them. Not as disturbing and scary as horror films, but they do manage to creep you out just right for Halloween night. Similarly, none has questioned the status of Elf, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and Home Alone as holiday films.

But there is one movie that has always left the audience perplexed about which time of the year it belongs to. And that is The Night Before Christmas. Is it a film that fits into the list of Christmas films or is it in fact meant for All Hallows eve?

If you scan all the characters of the film it definitely weighs more in the favor of being a Halloween movie. The film’s main character is a skeleton called The Pumpkin King. He has a dog who happens to be a ghost. The film is full of Witches and then we also have Oogie Boogie who is a sinister creature filled with snakes and uses a torture chamber to scare people. But as it turns out, that does not make it easy to place it as a Halloween film.

The entire film is set in a Christmas town and speaks only about Christmas. And the biggest hint? It has Christmas in the title! The films the main objective is clearly finding the true meaning of Christmas. So when Christmas runs so deep in the plot, it would not be fair to classify it as a Halloween movie. And have you noticed the uncanny resemblance it shares with the film How The Grinch Stole Christmas?

The makers, however, feel differently. Henry Selick in a Q&A at Colorado’s Telluride Horrorshow film festival made his views quite clear: “It’s a Halloween movie.”

As per the report in BirthsMoviesDeaths, The director said that the film was about Halloween, the people of Halloween and what are their views about something like Christmas. His claims actually make sense if you take into account the time of its release which was just in time for the Halloween of 1993.

But if we try to dissect the idea of the plot with practical reasoning, it gives more of a Christmas vibe than the Halloween vibe. What do you suggest?
