The concept is fascinating. Most of the characters are based on iconic horror movie characters, like Frankenstein and Van Helsing. In addition, the movie is set in black and white, trying to capture the old look of horror movies. And yes, I don't think this film is suitable for children, more like teenagers and adults, containing some scenes that may disturb children.
It's the story of Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan), who, after losing his beloved dog Sparky, tries to revive him using lightning. The experiment is a success, but no one should know about what happened. Things start to get messed up when Edgar (voiced by Atticus Shaffer) discovers Sparky.
The animation is great. Tim Burton brings us a stop-motion masterpiece, paying attention to every detail from the movie's beginning to its end. The decent overall voice performance does the job just fine, giving us spooky character, Atticus Shaffer's voice gave me the chills. Tim Burton's fine job and the voice actors' performance give us the horror atmosphere necessary for the movie.
Burton is always highly imaginative and creative, but he's somehow missing something. Don't get me wrong, the movie's great, but something would've made it better. Frankenweenie will entertain a good percentage of its watchers, making it a must see 2012 movie.
Frankenstein puppy for the win.
I have enjoyed Tim Burton films since I was just a kid, and this was among the first of his films I ever saw as a kid, aside from Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands. The rest is history. I own the general majority of his works, between DVD and Blu-Ray. The original Frankenweenie is likely the only VHS I own, other than my wife's many classic Disney VHS tapes.
I won't waste my time going into what this film is about, because undoubtedly you have an idea if you're familiar with the new one, or have likely read the description on this movie's page. It is only near half an hour long, but it's an entertaining and enjoyable half hour. An fun little homage to Frankenstein that all ages could enjoy. If you have never seen this before, pay the small amount to watch it here on Amazon, and then of course do see the latest reimagining of it afterwards as well, if you have not already.
