Edward Scissorhands’ Neighborhood, 25 Years Later

Andrew Cremeans grew up in Tampa, Florida, in the neighborhood that was used as the setting of the 1990 film Edward Scissorhands. In the movie, the area seemed eerily fresh and suburban, with houses painted pastel colors and, eventually, custom topiary shrubbery in every yard. Twenty-five years later, Cremeans returned to the neighborhood to see how it had changed. And took pictures. He talked to Mashable about his project.

I couldn't believe how small of a section the neighborhood was used, it seemed so huge in the movie. It feels especially small when you are standing and looking down the street to the cul de sac the castle was on. It really just felt like any old Tampa neighborhood. I caught myself wondering many times if all these people know that their house was in the movie. If it were my house, I'd have a huge framed poster of my screenshot of the movie in my living room.

The trees that have grown up over a quarter-century make a huge difference. What I really want to know is how they managed to demolish that huge mountain in the background. See all of Cremeans’ photos paired with screenshots from the movie at imgur. -via mental_floss
