Madcap director Tim Burton has always been fan of horror since his father used to mimic werewolves to entertain him as a child.

The American movie-maker has directed a series of spooky films, including Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow.

Burton recalls, "He had there false teeth and when a full moon came out he would pretend he was a werewolf.

"He could make his real teeth go away, so that all he had left were these sharp teeth that he tried to scare all the kids in the neighbourhood with."
