As always, Tim Burton delivers!! This review may border on biased, as I am a fan of Tim Burton. The movie was wonderful in a sense of that it had the action and excitement of horror flix of yesteryear. From the Professor that reminds me of (and I am sure a lot of other who remember) Vincent Price. To steal a term from Scooby Doo cartoons, it hall the usual suspects of "groovy ghoulies". Elsa Van Helsig was adorable, especially bc she was played by Winona Ryder. The movie will be an instant classic and I am sure you will be able to buy over-priced memorabilia at Disneyland and Downtown Disney. MUST GO!!!

If you've seen the long trailer then you've seen much of the plot. Not great but ok. There were some homages to other classic monster films, but they didn't add much entertainment value. Worth seeing in the theater but not worth buying on BluRay.
Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman are better.

This movie was sad for my 9 y/o and scary for my 7 y/o. I think that this movie should be rated pg-13. I wouldn't recommend taking small children to see this movie.

I loved this movie. It was great to see the friendship of a boy and his dog, and how a dog is your forever friend. I cried but also smiled during the movie.

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.
