Tim Burton has likened watching his own movies to going to a funeral.
The filmmaker is known for his gothic fantasy and horror movies, and people across the world will celebrate Halloween by watching the likes of Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Dark Shadows.
However, Burton probably won't be watching one of his classics on the sofa tonight.
Speaking to Deadline at the Lumière Festival in France earlier this month, the 64-year-old said: "I don't really watch my movies.
"It was strange seeing the clips. I got quite emotional.
"It feels like each film you do is part of your life and is very deep and meaningful so it's like watching your life flashing before your eyes – that's why I likened it to a funeral in a way, in a beautiful way, it captures moments of your life.
