When one thinks of the writer, director, producer, animator, and overall cinematic visionary Tim Burton, what words come to mind? Dark? Mysterious? Fantastic? Twisted? Magical?

All of those words would be correct. Burton has created not only his own style, but essentially his own genre. "Burtonesque" movies have become so distinct, in fact, that just by watching the new trailer for Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children (in theaters on September 30), we can immediately tell it's a Burton production.
