From Disney and creative genius Tim Burton (ALICE IN WONDERLAND; THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) comes the hilarious and offbeat 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 learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous. Complete with electrifying bonus features, FRANKENWEENIE is alive with enchanting fun for the whole family.

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.
This wonderful film is a homage to the low budget horror and science fiction "B Films" of the 1950 and 1960s such as Dracula, Wolfman, the Mummy and Godzilla.
For those who have never seen the original versions of those films some of the inside jokes, and there are a number of them in this film, might be lost on you. Those inside jokes had me constantly giggling and laughing while my wife, who had not seen any of those films before, didn't understand why I was giggling and laughing at times.
Tim often displays a macabre sense of humor and that can be seen here in this film as it was in Corpse Bride. If you love Corpse Bride, as I do, you will love this film for the same reasons. The characters here are engaging and the storyline for the most part is very well done, although there are a few missed opportunities for character development and interaction such as with Victor and the neighbor girl.
From a graphic and technical perspective this film will also not disappoint. The graphics are extremely clear and crisp in blue ray, even though they are in black and white or shade of grey, which is very appropriate to the feeling and atmosphere of this film. The sound is also excellent as well and Danny Elfman's score is darn good and very appropriate to the film as well.
The only negative point in this film for both my wife and I was the all too Disney style ending. I don't want to spoil it for you so will leave it up to you to see what I mean.
I for one hope Tim will continue to make animated films of this caliber and not re-trench back to doing re-makes of other peoples original films as he did with Planet of the Apes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland. While they were interesting films they were not great as Frankenweenie is.
Highly recommended - especially to you Baby Boomers out there!
