I loved this movie. It was great to see the friendship of a boy and his dog, and how a dog is your forever friend. I cried but also smiled during the movie.

This movie was sad for my 9 y/o and scary for my 7 y/o. I think that this movie should be rated pg-13. I wouldn't recommend taking small children to see this movie.

I really liked it. I am a really big Tim Burton fan, so my opinion may be biased, but I loved the B&W effect, the story, the characters, and the eerie ghoulishness. If you have seen Burton's early films of Victor and Frankenweenie (short version, non-animated) and can appreicate them, then you will enjoy this movie.
One thing to keep in mind for kids is that although the movie is not scary it does have a couple sad moments that could upset young children under 5-7 (approx.). I guess just use your judgement when it comes to taking kids to see this movie.

The title almost says it all -- definitely a charming and strange gothic tale replete with clever dialogue and quirky characters. Stunning animation and visuals serve as scenic eye candy as well. If you're a Tim Burton fan then you'll probably like this.

If you've seen the long trailer then you've seen much of the plot. Not great but ok. There were some homages to other classic monster films, but they didn't add much entertainment value. Worth seeing in the theater but not worth buying on BluRay.
Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman are better.
