Once upon a time in a castle high on a hill lived an inventor (Vincent Price) whose greatest creation was named Edward. Although Edward (Johnny Depp) had an irresistible charm, he wasn’t quite perfect. The inventor’s sudden death left him unfinished, with sharp shears of metal for hands. Edward lived alone in the darkness until one day a kind Avon Lady (Dianne Wiest) took him home to live with her family. And so began Edward’s fantastic adventures in a pastel paradise known as Suburbia.
