Course Bride is one of those films that wasn’t a huge hit when it was released but has become one of the most loved and favorited films in the world of animation. The combination of Tim Burtons designs and the artistry of McKinnon and Saunders puppet fabrication added up to a masterfully executed classic film. To say that Corpse Bride is a cult classic would be an understatement. In fandom gothic stop motion fandom you will find two films at the top of the list for fan favorites. The first being The Nightmare Before Christmas and the second being Corpse Bride. Both Tim Burton films and both very worthy of the iconic status of being legendary films. Checkout the video that McKinnon and Saunders put together of their behind the scenes puppet construction and posted on their Vimeo. Check it out below.
