When you were younger and had a pet, particularly a dog, then you may rekindle past feelings. That's what I experienced. A boy's best friend was his dog, and when the day happened that his dog died, it makes you remember when your pet died too. Through what you already know from Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein," happens, you want to see and hear that familiar bark again. It's funny how animals can make us feel. Lastly, I saw it in 3D - however, not surprising, 2D is satisfactory enough.

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.

I loved this movie. After seeing so many formula movies this was so refreshing and creative. Love Tim Burton and he did this one just right. My kids are grown but they would have loved it. Parents should know how much their kids can handle before bringing under 8 yr. olds. Some little kids at the theater told me they loved it.
It has crazy monsters and strangeness....delicious!

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.

I was surprised at how dark the theme was for being a Disney movie. Of course, Disney makes great endings! Don't want to give it away. I loved the story line. Loved that it was in black and white. Made the movie very retro. Liked it very much.
