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.

I am a huge fan of Tim Burton and was pleasantly surprised that the entire movie done in black and white. This is a must see for all pet owners! It will most def tug at your heart strings and even make the dudes cry.
I was so happy to see Winona Ryder's name in the credits as Elsa!!!
Go see this movie! I feel it is appropriate for kids over the age of 7 or 8.

This was a cute movie, with a nice message. My grandson, who is 7 1/2, did not like that it was in black and white. Kids have so many options these days, that they are used to HD Color, and the black and white did not appeal to him. We did not go to the 3-D, however, that might have made a difference.

From the very start I laughed. I am a push over for slap stick comedy. It was well written, all the corn was added; the tongue and cheek humor was there and the characters grow on you. It is good to see the old story re-invented for the kids and parents too. The name tells the story. I am glad that every old horror story was involved, from Godzilla, Igor,swamp thing, Gremlins,and the mummy. Now enough of the teasers, see the movie!One adult, one 7 year old and one 4 year old opinions! It is only black and white if you see it in 3D. Other wise it is in color and much better.

My husband, my 8 year old and I enjoyed the movie. My 4 year old however, was terrified. I had to console my crying son throughout the scary parts. Not really for kids 6 and under.
