The characters were so funny and funny looking. Adults can relate to this movie and the kids in the audience were truly amused! A must see.

This was a very good movie with an allusion to every good and bad horror flicks of the 50's. Some of us will even notice the nods to 50 horror film greats, the most noticeable to Vincent Price. I especially like the allusion to the short film, Bambi meets Godzilla. Finally, the kids loved it, and that is what mattered. Even if you are not a Tim Burton fan, you will enjoy this movie. If you are, like me, then you can sit back and relax and enjoy the usual enjoyable Burton-kitsch location malaise of suburbs, classic anti-hero characters, and some gross-outs.

For Tim Burton, this is one of his best movies in years. For those of us that are horror buffs, he pulls out the stops including a cameo from Christopher Lee (Start Wars Count Duku/ LOTR's Soriman) from one of his old Hammer productions from the 50's. It's classic! Being a horror fan from childhood the movie really hit home. Burton has you emotionally compromised in the first 5 minutes building strong feelings for the main characters. This is a key element to a good horror movie.
I had two five year old's in toe and the fear factor was perfect for their age. They were scared but not too scared to quit watching. It was a great introduction into the genera. They came out of the movie excited for their new hero: Frankenweenie!
This is a must see for kids 5-10 or horror buffs.

I like it! I took my 11 year old twins and we really enjoyed it. It was a bit short,but it was worth it. I say go see it, it will make you laugh. I sure did.

My Grandson loved it. Little bit of the old Frankenstein story updated for kids. The Adults loved it and got the story. I enjoyed it as much as the kids did.
