Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Corpse Bride

Impossible not to be awed by the level of craft & imagination that Burton & co. bring to this little fable, as the filmmakers lovingly weave together elements of Poe, Bava, Hammer Horror, Czech & Polish animation influences & the kind of whimsical outsider narrative that propelled Tim Burton's own short fiction. At a shade over 70 mins it feels underdeveloped; the third act in particular needed more time to unfold.
