When I first saw this movie I will admit I was rather freaked out with the appearance of some characters, including the children. The movie was funny. There was kind of a lesson to be learned with science. It was an emotional movie.
if you are a parent, I may not bring the younger children. Teens, I would definitely let them see this movie.

Maybe not for kids under 7 but my 9 year old nephew understood the movie, wasn't scared and thought it was awesome. So did his kid at heart aunt!!!

Tim Burton lived up to his reputation with this great children's version of a horror movie that pays homage to almost all of the classics from the original Frankenstein to Gremlins.

Frankenweenie was a wonderful movie. I will probably see it again because Tim Burton's attention to detail is so spot on that I want to go back and look for things I might not have noticed the first time. Sparky and Victor's relationship took me right back to my own childhood pets and at times it was very emotional. The characters were all just perfectly blended into the story and I never expected to be so touched by this story but it did pull at my heartstrings and remind me how much love our pets bring to our lives. I especially loved how he paid homage to all of the classic horror movies throughout the movie.

One of my kids (5 and 3) favorite movies is Nightmare Before Christmas, so we were really looking fwd to another Burton masterpiece. We were not disappointed. Fun with just about the right amount of darkness. As in most Tim Burton movies, the characters are fabulous! My 3 year old daughter actually cried at the end...not because she was scared, but sad that the movie was over!
