Trivia

Ransom Riggs' novel was partly inspired by otherworldly vintage photographs, one of them being a cover-shot of a levitating girl. The author collected these at flea markets, included them in the book, and later showed them all to Tim Burton, before filming began. See more »

Goofs

There are 3 piers stretching out into the sea in Blackpool, North, Central and South, but none of them are directly in front of the Blackpool Tower. The closest one is North Pier which is around a quarter of a mile away. See more »

Tim Burton classic
28 September 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Tim Burton does it again - he manages to create with passion and imagination a whole new world, for those of us who need new worlds. Thus if you love fantasy and dreams made serious and scary go see it in 3d because it's great. If you are more of an adult than the child within and you like films with linear plot and logic and exhaustive explanations you probably won't become a fan and that's OK too. Just don't rate it low just because it's not your type, a movie should be rated for what it was meant to be and for what the team behind it tried to accomplish. Watch the trailer, if you like it you'll probably love the film. It's worth mentioning that it is quite dark and scary so it's not for every child.
