When a car hits young Victor’s pet dog Sparky, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked “monster” wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor’s neighbors, he has to convince them that Sparky’s still the good, loyal friend he was.

Movie Reviews:

  • r96sk: Good stuff, unmistakably Tim Burton.

    Frankenweenie is a solid stop-motion horror film from Disney. Interesting plot, coupled with a suitable cast and untypical animation. It’s also in black-and-white, which doesn’t hamper things at all – I, in a weird sort of way, kinda forgot it was b/w for vast portions.

    Charlie Tahan voices the lead character, Victor Frankenstein. You also have well-known names in Winona Ryder (Elsa), Martin Short (Edward) and Catherine O’Hara (Susan). I also liked Martin Landau as Rzykruski. There’s decent humour amongst those characters, too.

    Worth a watch, for sure.
