Like the great Vincent Price said himself:, 7 June 2004
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls

`This better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard' …Tim Burton's homage to one of the greatest horror actors that ever lived is an adorably animated little poem. You can really sense Burton's respect! Vincent tells us about a 7-year-old boy with a passion for the charismatic horror actor. Rather than to go out and play with friends, he hides in his room and relives the Vincent Price films like `House of Wax' and `The Raven'… The animation style returned over 10 years later in Burton's masterpiece ‘The Nightmare before Christmas'. It's dark and rather ghoulish…but irresistibly charming! Price himself does the narrating and you can tell doing so clearly honored him. Vincent is a must for all Burton or Price fans and recommend to anyone else who knows how to appreciate imaginative cinema. `Vincent' comes as an extra-feature on the Special DVD-edition of Nightmare before Christmas. Check it out… it only takes 6 minutes of your time and you get a lovely and fresh surprise in return.
