Creepy Characters from Tim Burton Flicks

For your pre-Halloween pleasure, names from the darkly whimsical Tim Burton movies.

Tim Burton is known for some of Hollywood’s quirkiest stories. From Beetlejuice to The Nightmare Before Christmas, they’re dark tales, perfect for Halloween, but funny, too. They’re also the source of some very memorable names – names that are just right for a child born around Halloween, or any time of the year. By Abby Sandel


Long before Stephenie Meyer imagined Twilight’s Cullen clan of sparkly vampires, there was Edward Scissorhands. The romantic tale debuted in 1990, with Johnny Depp as a Frankenstein-esque figure adept at trimming hedges and carving ice sculptures. Other great names from the movie included Helen and Esmeralda.

Yup just coming to reiterate that Tim Burton was not responsible for Coraline. It seems strange that enough effort went in to finding out when Coraline came out and who created her (Neil Gaiman) yet nobody saw that it wasn’t directed by Tim Burton. Poor Henry Selick.
