Storyline

Vincent Malloy, a polite 7-year-old boy and a fervent Vincent Price aficionado, has only one dream: to become like his idol. With this in mind and with the help of his unrestrained imagination, young Vincent relives his favourite actor's movies and stories, performing strange experiments in the likes of Edgar Allan Poe's tales. However, much to the boy's irritation, somehow, his mother always manages to get in the way. Poor Vincent, no one understands you. Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Narrator: Vincent Malloy is seven years old, / He's always polite and does what he's told. / For a boy his age he's considerate and nice, / But he wants to be just like Vincent Price. / He doesn't mind living with his sister, dog and cats, / Though he'd rather share a home with spiders and bats. / There he could reflect on the horrors he's invented, / And wander dark hallways alone and tormented. / Vincent is nice when his aunt comes to see him, / But imagines dipping her in wax for his wax museum. / He ...

Graveyard Humor
12 May 2001 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

Spooky young VINCENT Malloy wants to grow up to become Vincent Price, in the worst possible way...

Darkly humorous, especially in shadowy black & white, this little stop motion animated cartoon is filmmaker Tim Burton's homage to his great friend, fright master Vincent Price (1911-1993). With its bizarre characters, grotesque story line & eerie visuals, it is a direct forerunner of Burton's feature length A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS (1993). A treat for those who enjoy the macabre.

Narrated with creepy perfection, appropriately enough, by Vincent Price.
