Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Tim Burton's reign as the king of Halloween truly began in the '80s with Beetlejuice, but he kept the hits coming in the '90s, beginning with Edward Scissorhands. The story of Edward, a young man assembled in a laboratory whose creator dies before he's complete, is the perfect blend of Gothic strangeness and heart. The movie isn't scary, but it gives us major Halloween feelings thanks to Burton's trademark touches of dark whimsy and the presence of scary-movie favourite Winona Ryder. Burton's movie is a fairy tale for Halloween-lovers and anyone who has ever wished Frankenstein had a happier ending.
