The Corpse Bride

The Corpse Bride, Tim Burton's new ghoulish animated film opened last weekend in five locations in North America and it will go on wide release next week.

On the way home to his fiancée, Victor (Johnny Depp) stops to practice his wedding vows, placing his ring on a stick poking out of the ground as a joke. He gets more than he bargained for when the stick turns out to be the finger of a dead woman, and now the Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter) is after him, claiming to legally be his bride and intent on showing Victor the time of his after-life.
Naomi Pfefferman, Arts & Entertainment Editor for The Jewish Journal has an interesting article on this movie where she states that "Corpse" has Jewish bones in that it has its origins in a similar chilling Jewish folk tale.
