The title almost says it all -- definitely a charming and strange gothic tale replete with clever dialogue and quirky characters. Stunning animation and visuals serve as scenic eye candy as well. If you're a Tim Burton fan then you'll probably like this.

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.

I am a huge fan of Tim Burton and was pleasantly surprised that the entire movie done in black and white. This is a must see for all pet owners! It will most def tug at your heart strings and even make the dudes cry.
I was so happy to see Winona Ryder's name in the credits as Elsa!!!
Go see this movie! I feel it is appropriate for kids over the age of 7 or 8.

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.
