Early Burton Short

Doctor of Doom (1979)

*** (out of 4)

This Tim Burton short isn't going to be for everyone but fans of low-grade "B" horror movies should find some entertainment in it. What we basically have is a doctor going to a dinner party where he's made fun of and soon afterwards he returns home and sends a monster to attack the people. There's a Mexican horror film called DOCTOR OF DOOM and I wondered while I was watching this if Burton was paying some sort of homage to it. I think the Mexican genre was clearly on display here including the look of the doctor and for the life of me I couldn't help but think the monster's (fake) mask was inspired by the cult classic THE BRAINIAC. Of course, I don't know any of this for certain but I'd really like to hear from the man himself and see if these Mexican films were an influence here. Overall the film is obviously very cheap and technically it's not too pretty but I think there's a lot of imagination going on and overall it's fun for what it is. Again, those fans of 50's horror movies should find some charm here.
