Corpse Bride (2005)
A non-undead man gets sent down to the underworld, against his will, where skeletons sing and play music in a bar.
In the beginning of both films Johnny Depp's characters frees a flying animal (bird and butterfly) from its cage and lets it fly out of his window.
The butterfly that comes out of the bottle that Jack opens, is also the butterfly that Victor draws in Corpse Bride.
In the dinner scene, the fire turns green just as it does in the seance scene in Beetlejuice
1) dog design reminscent of dog in Vincent; 2) Finnis Everglot mistakenly refers to Victor as Vincent, a reference to this earlier film.
The Town Crier yells "The dead walk the earth"; a common catchphrase in zombie movies and mythos coined in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead, where Peter (Ken Foree) deliver the even more famous line: "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth".
A shot of multiple crows looking down on Vincent is filmed as a homage to the shots of multiple birds looking down in The Birds.
Alfred says to his wife "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn."
The dancing skeletons in Corpse Bride borrow routines from the Disney classic

Elder Gutknecht's Library/Lab closely resenbles the one of Rabbi Loew in "Der Golem" - and they work on similar subjects.
