~plot - When a shy young Victor Van Dort fails to recite his vows properly at his wedding rehersal to a complete stranger Victoria Everglott he flees and practises his vows in the woods. However when he eventually gets it spot on he accidently places the ring on the finger of a corpse known as the corpse bride . He ends up in the afterlife known as the land of the dead (which proves to be much more colourful and fun than the land of the living). He desperatly tries to get home especially when he finds out that his beloved wife to be will be marrying someone else to save her family from the poor house. The man she is being forced to marry is the devious Lord Barkiss, who is only after Victoria for her money (not knowing that she and her family are now completely broke) When he (and the rest of the dead) finally get to the land of the living a shocking discovery is made which reveals how Emily (the corpse bride) died and who did it as Victor and Victoria are finally able to be together. Charming comedy with an all star cast including Christopher Lee, and a few sweet songs along the way. Tim Burton has done it again as THE CORPSE BRIDE proves to be bigger and better than the NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
