    OMG, this is the best!! It’s been years since I’ve seen it (I don’t even remember Rickman or Bower being in it, but I remember Bonham Carter being crazy good). Tim Burton is so good at creepy and marrying it with something random, like slasher film cross musical. WHO EVEN DOES THAT?!
    Now I have to go watch it again.

    Oooooo hell yes, I definitely scrolled down for this because I’ve watched it a few times in choir in high school and well… let’s just say it was gloriously bloody and musical. LMAO AT 5, 11 and just all around calling Helena Bonham Carter the Harry Potter chick. Actually, I don’t even know if I wrote her name right.

    LOLOL those were my exact thoughts with the oven scene. I didn’t remember Rickman or Bower in it either??? But then again… it’s been a time and a half since I watched this despite watching it multiple times in high school choir because all the older peeps were hella obsessed with this movie.
