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.

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.

This is Tim Burton. This is dark, scary and about death. The kids dog dies. Great for pre-teens and up, even a bit younger if you know what to expect. We were shocked when in walked 40 kids from a rec group, club or school- and they were mostly 6-8. By the end they were crying and scared. They are probably having nightmares tonight- what were the teachers/leaders and parents thinking?? The teens and tweens in the audience liked this movie- but it was the adults who loved it. You know your child best- but be educated, know that this is not for sensitive kids. Really young ones had no clue what was going on, but they cried at the scary jump out at you parts- so just be aware so you don't ruin it for the others who came to watch TIM BURTON.

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.)
