From Back Cover:

"A Delightful and Delicate Comic Fable."

Once upon a time in a castle high on a hill lived an inventor whose greatest creation was named Edward. Although Edward had an irresistable charm, he wasn't quite perfect. The inventor's sudden death left him infinished, with sharp shears of metal for hands. Edward lived alone in the darkness until one day a kind Avon lady took him home to live with her family. So began Edward's fantastical adventures in a pastel paradise known as Suburbia.

From Tim Burton comes an unforgettable fairy tale starring Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Vincent Price as the Inventor.

My Comments:

Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, Danny Elfman.
When you see these three names together, you're pretty much gauranteed of two things:

1) The movie is going to be freaking weird.
2) The movie is going to be freaking awesome.

This movie is no exception.
