All his works have a dark halo

Gothic and dark cinema is a constant in all Tim Burton films. Although many of them are full of color, they always have a dark and gloomy touch.

In addition, almost all of his sinister-featured characters have large dark circles and extreme proportions (or they are too tall or too short, too thin or too thick).

Repeating elements

In many films there are various elements that are repeated, such as: dead dogs (loves these animals), clowns, scarecrows, crooked trees, black and white squares, etc.
