Vincent a 7 year old boy, Vincent Malloy, who pretends to be like the actor Vincent Price (who narrates the film). He does experiments on his dog Abercrombie. He is obsessed with the tales of Edgar Allan Poe, and it is his detachment from reality when reading them that leads to his delusions that he is in fact a tortured artist, deprived of the woman he loves, mirroring certain parts of Poe’s “The Raven”. The film ends with Vincent feeling terrified of being tortured by the going-ons of his make-believe world, quoting “The Raven” as he falls to the floor in frailty, believing himself to be dead.
For some reason Tim Burton’s Vincent is highly engaging and has an interesting storyline and is full of originality and of course is well directed this is a must see classic Stop animation
