On his way home to be married to Victoria (voice of Emily Watson), Victor (voice of Johnny Depp) jokingly puts his wedding ring on what looks like a tree branch and recites his wedding vows. The tree branch is not what it seems; instead, it is the decayed finger of a corpse, Emily (voice of Helena Bonham Carter) who was murdered on the way to her own wedding. Now, the corpse comes to life as a zombie and insists that she and Victor are married. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature.
