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.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Tim Burton's most enjoyable movie in a long time.Tom Charity, CNN.com, 01.07.2013
The stop-motion animation - a favorite tool of Burton's - is given loving attention, and the character design is full of terrific touches, such as the hulking flat-topped schoolmate who looks a bit like a certain man-made monster.Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 10.05.2012
It was wise to make the film in black and white, and 3D adds to the charm of this sweetly retro experience. Sparky is hereby added to my list of the cinema's most endearing woofers.David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia), 10.25.2012
Burton is in lively, playful and sharp form here, deftly balancing blatant eeriness with a chipper cheeriness that excuses many a macabre event.Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), 10.25.2012
