14. Corpse Bride

Release Year: 2005

Written and Directed by Tim Burton and Mike Johnson.

Starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, Tracey Ullman, Christopher Lee, Paul Whitehouse, Albert Finney, Richard E. Grant, Michael Gough, and Joanna Lumley.

As with most Tim Burton movies, this stylistically beautiful tale is both creepy and enthralling. Right before he gets married, the protagonist, Victor, accidentally proposes in the woods and is heard by a Corpse Bride, who assumes his proposal is meant for her and brings him down to the underworld. Chaos ensues, as Victor desperately tries to rectify his mistake without hurting the feelings of the Corpse Bride and trying to get back to his loving fiancé from the underworld.

A mix of mystery, usual Tim Burton humor, and a brilliant cast leads to one of the most underrated movies on this list – and did I mention that it’s also partly a musical?
