In a castle high on top of a hill lives an inventor's greatest creation - Edward, a near-complete person. The creator died before he could finish Edward's hands; instead, he is left with metal scissors for hands. Since then, he has lived alone, until a kind lady called Peg discovers him and welcomes him into her home. At first, everyone welcomes him into the community, but soon things begin to take a change for the worse.Written by
During the scene where Edward is cutting the neighborhood ladies hair, the song playing is from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Johnny Depp would later go on to play Sweeney Todd in another collaboration with Tim Burton. See more »

Snuggle in, sweetie. It's cold out there.
Why is it snowing, Grandma? Where does it come from?
Oh, that's a long story, sweetheart...

In order to secure a PG certificate in the UK the cinema version was cut by 8 secs to edit some violence during the climactic fight. A shot of Edward being kicked in the stomach was removed and his beating with the crowbar was reduced from 8 blows to 2. The video/DVD versions feature the same print with the cuts now lengthened to 15 secs. The cuts were fully waived by the BBFC for the upgraded 12-rated 2007 DVD release. See more »
I would have to say that Edward Scissorhands is by far one of the best films done by Tim Burton. It is a very beautiful story. They couldn't have chosen a better cast for this movie. Johnny Depp is phenomenal as Edward. He brings the characters in his movies to life so well that it is hard to believe that he is acting. It seems as if when he learns about the movie and goes over the scripts that he transforms in the character. This film is definitely one of them. This movie is nothing short of enchanting. This movie was the reason that I fell in love with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. If you like movies that leave you bug eyed, make you think, and leave you wanting more then this is the film for you. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good fairy tale.
