Edward Scissorhands

A modern day fairy tale which tells the story of Edward, the man created by an inventor, who died before finishing him and left Edward with scissors where he should have hands. One day when the local "Avon" representative calls at the historic mansion where Edward has been living alone, she takes him home to stay with her family. He has to adapt to the new life and environment that he isn't used to. Soon he shows a talent in cutting hair and hedges, and wins every body's heart. But life isn't always so sweet.

Edward gets framed and he is hated by the whole town apart from the Boggs (the family he lives with). We find out that the Avon representative's daughter Kim has feelings for Edward, and she admits this at the end after Edward stabs Jim (Kim's ex) who tries to kill Edward because he was jealous. At the very end we found out that the old lady from the start telling the story is Kim in her older days. Edward is immortal and that he is making it snow by making lots of ice sculptures - the ice shavings are being let out over the town.

Continuity mistake: Before Edward is looking at the family pictures you can see some scars on his face are open, when the camera focuses back on him the scars are closed.

Trivia: When Peg Boggs enters the mansion for the first time, there is a spikey shadow on the wall at the top of the stairs. Listen carefully and you can hear scissors snipping and the shadow will move - it is Edward looking down to see the stranger in his house.

Question: When Edward kills Kim's (ex) boyfriend, we see Kim run to the window after him, there is blood on her arm. Where did it come from?

Answer: The blood came from another wound on Jim's body. Edward did cut him on his arm and he does fall back onto Kim so she could have gotten some blood onto her dress that way.
