While Tim Burton is known for his numerous imaginative films such as "Edward Scissorhands" and "The Nightmare before Christmas," for his new animated horror film, he says the inspiration was completely drawn from his own childhood experiences.
Burton, 54, sat down with OTRC.com correspondent Tony Cabrera to talk about his new spooky film, "Frankenweenie," which opened in theaters on October 5 - just in time for Halloween.

Eva Green is known for her darker roles, making it no surprise that the French actress ended up in Tim Burton's vampire film "Dark Shadows" - with the added bonus of snuggling up to co-star Johnny Depp.
"It is the first sex scene in a Tim Burton film," Green told OnTheRedCarpet.com of her kooky on-screen love scene with Depp. "So, here we go - [I'm] very proud. It took several days, I mean, it took maybe three days, and then the stunt people who did all the hard stuff, probably for a good week. It's a very funny scene, for sure."
Chloe Grace Moretz says she has always looked up to Tim Burton, who directed her, Johnny Depp, and Michelle Pfeiffer in the new vampire film, "Dark Shadows."
Depp plays Barnabas Collins, a playboy vampire who was buried alive for more than 200 years after breaking the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard, played by Eva Green. Pfeiffer plays Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, Collins' cousin and matriarch in the household, while Moretz, 15, plays Stoddard's the young and misunderstood daughter, Carolyn.
Michelle Pfeiffer was inspired to be proactive in securing her dark role in Tim Burton's new film, "Dark Shadows," remembering how she almost missed out on a prime opportunity to work with him 10 years ago.
"I called him up and begged him to be in it, okay?" Pfeiffer said in an April 2012 press interview with OnTheRedCarpet. "It was shameless - oh, yes I did - I did. It was terrible of me. I almost didn't get to do Batman!"
