  • The film opened in New York City and Los Angeles December 7, 1990, and was released nationwide December 14, 1990. Filmed in the Land O'Lakes housing settlement, located north of Tampa, Florida. Forty-four of the fifty houses in this area were painted in pastel shades like pink, green, blue, and yellow to give the "previously subdued neighborhood a timeless, classic suburban look." Huge topiary statues consisting of chicken wire and metal frameworks with plastic greens attached and animal-shaped shrubs, meant to be examples of Edward's work, were later added to their front yards. The character of Edward is said by film critics and historians to be a reflection of how director Tim Burton sees himself. The role of The Inventor was actor Vincent Price's last screen role; he died of lung cancer in Hollywood Hills, California on October 25, 1993 at the age of 82. In a film career than spanned 55 years, he appeared in over 100 films, only a fraction of which were either as villains or sinister protagonists in horror thrillers for which he was famous, such as THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM (1961), THE RAVEN (1963), and THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (1964), all of which were based on macabre E.A. Poe stories.
