Tim Burton may be the master of all things weird and magical, but his films got this sort of stamp that you’ll not find in other movies. Yes, if you’ll watch a Tim Burton’s film, you’ll know. But in case you were living in a cave and heard nothing about this super creative director, here’s some awesomely weird common film elements you’ll find in his movies.
Must have Pancake White Make-up
Burton likes his women as fair as snow, with gold locks that have dainty curls—in short, your typical fairy princesses set in a weird world that they are not familiar with.

Pudgy Boys Staple
These characters with pudgy faces are the ones you shouldn’t entirely trust, like Augustus Gloop in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Tweedledee & Tweedledum in Alice in Wonderland.
Must Love Flashbacks
His characters always have a story in their past that they reminisce half-way through the film like Emily’s nasty death in The Corpse Bride and Ichabod Crane’s dream of his mother’s death. And who can forget about how Big Fish, it was an entire flashback of a film, right? Here’s the trailer if you haven’t watched it.
There Must be a Witch. Of Course!
Of course there’s a witch, it’s a Tim Burton movie, for crying out loud! And these witches are sassy and bitchy characters you just love to hate.
Young Lady with Spunk
In a Tim Burton movie, you gotta look for that young lady who are quite misunderstood rebels like Chloe Moretz’s character in Dark Shadows and Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice, among many other characters.
Tim Burton just gotta have that lead character who’s quite fidgety and not accepted in the community. The Mad Hatter and Edward Scissorhands (both played by Johnny Depp) are excellent examples.
Perfect Halloween Costumes
Yep, all his characters are pretty much perfect for Halloween as they are all easy to recognize and amazing to recreate. Look at these people having a blast with ‘em:
This famed director also has his bro buds Johnny Depp and lovely wife Helena Bonham-Carter in most of his films. So, it made Depp and Carter his faves too, and I am stating the obvious? #IKR Featured Image Source: animationbegins.wordpress.com
