A Nightmare on Elm Street,” by Tim Burton

I think one of them is taller than the other. Both their first names contain three letters, its a very understandable confusion.

And if they're talking about A Nightmare Before Christmas, they're still wrong, because it's by Henry Selick!

Pee Wee Herman was never better than when he was in that one remake of Virgin Spring.

And let us not forget Tim Burton's pioneering foray into the lofty realm of "Pissing Off Alan Moore" with his adaptation of Swamp Thing.
