Nice to see once, it's not that special.

I´m not a Burton fan by any means but I enjoyed this one. A dark comedy with a subtle sense of humor. Yes, the final 10 min or so are a bit of a letdown but the 100 before that are ok.

An uneasy mix of comedy and horror, this is still an entertaining watch for the most part. The third act falls apart quite literally, probably to please those who like special effects over story, which is a shame. When the film focusses on its weird array of characters and period setting this is a lot more involving.
