True to Burton's dark side, it's a little scary. Floating heads in Red Queen's moat has the power to cause queasiness as does the lanky walk of her side kick, Stayne. However, the Mad Hatter is endearing despite being, well, mad. I love his eyebrows and on again off again lisp...but what's not to love about Johnny Depp?
The costumes, make-up, special effects...ALL of it is art. Beautiful, funky and creepy art. Go see it in the theater if you can!
