The original Frankenweenie that came out in 1984 was a childhood favorite of mine and my 4 brothers. Seeing the new version made me ecstatic! I loved how close to the original it was! Way to go Burton!, not letting anyone take away from it! To think he got himself in poor favor with Disney over the original and now they see the genius that was behind it and let him run all over the place with this one! It may be a little crude and down-right disgusting in parts, but the beloved original story of a boy and his dog shine through and bring love and joy to your heart! A MUST SEE for all Tim Burton fans and fans of the original short movie!

This movie is a typical Tim Burton animation. In black and white, it is just as quirky as "Nightmare Before Christmas", "Beetlejuice" and "Corpse Bride". However, it takes a dark turn reminiscent of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary". I felt this movie was not fun or cute in any way. I certainly would not recommend it.
And, if you are wondering, definitely not a children's movie.
Save your money on this one...go see "Hotel Transylvania" instead!

Interesting technique but otherwise a yawner.
