Frankenweenie Comedy

From creative genius Tim Burton ("Alice in Wonderland," "The Nightmare Before Christmas") comes "Frankenweenie," a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life-with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new 'leash on life' can be monstrous. A stop-motion animated film, "Frankenweenie" will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • A-
    Tim Burton has become a reliable producer of mega-budget monster hits, but his new film 'Frankenweenie' is a very personal look at the fears of childhood, gorgeously brought to life by stop-motion animation.
