Narrator: Vincent Malloy is seven years old, / He's always polite and does what he's told. / For a boy his age he's considerate and nice, / But he wants to be just like Vincent Price. / He doesn't mind living with his sister, dog and cat, / Though he'd rather share a home with spiders and bats. / There he could reflect on the horrors he's invented, / And wander dark hallways alone and tormented. / Vincent is nice when his aunt comes to see him, / But imagines dipping her in wax for his wax museum. / He ...

A masterpiece
9 September 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

God, I cannot stress this enough: TIM BURTON IS A Genius! "Vincent" was one of Tim's first films. Actually, first ideas. He has a very interesting imagination when it comes to this film. It reminded me a lot of Edgar Allen Poe. In some ways, I think Tim is the new Edgar Allen Poe of our day. His movies are strange and sad at the same time. Scary and fun. It could go on and on. And the film is narrated by his childhood icon, Vincent Price. So it does add a little haunting texture. I would recommend this for Tim Burton fans. Just get "Nightmare before Christmas". It's at the end. It's a fantastic short. I think you'll like it.

10/10
