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!.

My husband, my 8 year old and I enjoyed the movie. My 4 year old however, was terrified. I had to console my crying son throughout the scary parts. Not really for kids 6 and under.

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 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!"

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!
