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!!!

This movie is an absolute delight! If you haven't seen it yet, get your ticket NOW. I never pay to see a movie twice, but I'm going back to see this my next day off. The story is wonderful and the animation is superb. Tim Burton has a winner here; for adults and kids alike this movie is a winner. Now, stop reading and go see "Frankenweenie!"

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.

The old-style Tim Burton animation is back and it delivers yet again. Literally the only thing missing was music. As a huge fan of Nightmare and also enjoying Corpse Bride I guess I just expected more of a musical, but it's not. However, the story is extremely fun and very clever. Homage is paid to all the old classic horrors films through characters and scenes which adds a little bit to the enjoyment. The characters mesh well together and each one has their own humor. However, Weird Girl and her cat, Mr. Whiskers, are my personal favorite. Take the kids or leave them at home, you'll enjoy this film regardless!

This was not a horrible movie, but it wasn't great either. It had some clever moments, but not enough to keep our attention for long. There were some interesting characters, but they never developed so we didn't get very attached to them. (Note: this movie is NOT for little kids. It would have horrified my 9-year-old.)
