The story for The Bride and the Beast is not Ed's. Despite this, the script bears many of his marks: obtuse dialogue, the occult, and angora all play their part.
The characters are not particularly Woodian (no doubt due to it not being his story).
Ultimately, this film has the undeniable stamp of Ed on it. It's a must have.Best Line
