Awesome / Edward Scissorhands

  • After having spent the entire film very cautious of his scissors and the narrative using them for (mostly) comedic purpose, it's a mixture of this and Nightmare Fuel when Edward for the first time intentionally uses them to hurt someone by killing Jim. And dear lord is it satisfying.
  • Kim gets one in the climax too:
    Kim: (holding one of Edward's fallen scissors to his throat) Stop it, or I'll kill you myself!
