Tim Burton’s utterly unique 1988 comedy-horror has held a special place in the hearts of filmfans and critics alike for over 30 years, and, whilst a sequel was being discussed in earnest over the last 5 years or so, the original is still peerless as the zenith of Burton’s twisted, macabre, utterly mesmerising cinematic vision. Michael Keaton’s performance is as enthralling as ever, and this multicolour gothic fairy tale is a treat for the senses on every level – it inspired a video game & a musical, and, most importantly, long overdue interest in the music of Harry Belafonte.
This will be a fully themed NCC event, so expect all manner of Burtonesque oddity and Netherworld strangeness – fancy dress strongly encouraged! Themed cocktail and Halloween Disco to follow!
