As a rule we don’t really celebrate halloween seriously here in Australia, although in recent years the supermarkets have been doing their best to wring a few bucks out of us, tempting the kids with shelves stocked with halloween-y things
Nevertheless, All Hallows Eve is the ideal time for me to share this clip, a short film called Vincent about a tormented young boy, Vincent Malloy, who wants nothing more than to be like Vincent Price.
Of course this film had to be narrated by Vincent Price, the owner of the best evil laugh ever, and animated by the suitably dark Tim Burton* who was probably just recreating the story of his own childhood. What more could I possibly ask for?
Happy halloween and a Mwah ha ha to you.
*You just knew animated movies are my favourite didn’t you? Nightmare Before Christmas, the best xmas movie ever, or maybe that’s just me😉
