"El cadáver de la novia, de Tim Burton se desarrolla en la oscura tradición romántica de sus creaciones anteriores: El Joven Manos de Tijera y El Extraño Mundo de Jack. Ambientada en una aldea europea del siglo 19, esta película de animación cueta la historia de Víctor (voz de Johnny Depp), un joven que es llevado repentinamente al inframundo al casarse accidentalmente con una misteriosa novia que es un cadáver (voz de Helena Bonham Carter) mientras que su novia real, Victoria (voz de Emily Watson), le espera en la tierra de los vivos. Aún cuando la vida en el mundo de los muertos resulta ser mucho más colorida de lo que su estricta educación ofrecía, Víctor comprende que no existe nada en esta vida ni en la otra, que la pueda separar de su verdadero amor. Es una historia de optimismo y de auténtica vida después de la muerte, que es contada al clásico estilo Burton."--Envase
