Edward Scissorhands

Burton's richly entertaining update of the Frankenstein story is the ... most comic, romantic and haunting film fantasy. ” Rolling Stone

30 Years since its release, TPH presents EDWARD SCISSORHANDS!

A scientist (Vincent Price) builds an animated human being — the gentle Edward (Johnny Depp). The scientist dies before he can finish assembling Edward, though, leaving the young man with a freakish appearance accentuated by the scissor blades he has instead of hands. Loving suburban saleswoman Peg (Dianne Wiest) discovers Edward and takes him home, where he falls for Peg’s teen daughter (Winona Ryder). However, despite his kindness and artistic talent, Edward’s hands make him an outcast.
