Vincent and Price

Tim Burton's 6-minute film Vincent (1982) is a short stop-motion animation shot in black and white. Burton based it on the poem he had written as a tribute to Vincent Price (who, among others, acted in all those E.A. Poe adaptation movies from the 1960s). Vincent is a tale in rhyme about one Vincent Malloy; a boy who is seven years old and does what he is told and is considerate and nice and wants to be just like Vincent Price... That the narrator of the poem is none other than Vincent Price himself, makes this deliciously macabre little film nothing short of perfect.
