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.

Being a Nightmare Before Christmas fan, I was hoping to find more of the same, but this black and white film was more of a love letter to monster movies of yesteryear (and a beautifully done one at that), but it was pretty forgettable as far as kid entertainment goes. Usually, my kids leave the theater talking about the best parts of a film over and over, but this one left them nothing but one funny scene to remember. I was expecting great things, but like many family movies as of late, I found this one appealing more to adults than to kids.

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.

I went with my kids (eight and three years old) and we really enjoyed it!
A little scary for my little one but he still loved Sparky!.

Good hearted, but misunderstood nerd proves that good science takes heart. The national obssession with immortality is realized for a boys best friend. This movie kept me engaged throughout and is right up there with Rocky and Bullwinkle for intelligent social insight and irresistible whimsy! You do not need a kid to enjoy this movie.
