  • Tim Burton's 1984 short film FRANKENWEENIE is resurrected for the big screen with this stop-motion 3D remake, which once again centers on a boy (Charlie Tahan) who reanimates his dead terrier and the suburban fallout that occurs because of it. BIG FISH screenwriter John August provided the script for the Walt Disney production.
  • Critic Reviews
    4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Shot in glorious black and white and beautifully voiced, this magnificent stop-motion cartoon is alive -- 'it's alive! -- with laughs and heart. Hilarious, exciting, touching, scary and richly entertaining..."
    Box Office

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] dark and dazzling spellbinder that scares up laughs and surprising emotion."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Burton draws his world with palpable affection....It's an Easter egg parade or film-lovers, doing for classic Hollywood horror what THE ARTIST did for silents."
    Total Film

    "The artistry reaches absolute perfection. FRANKENWEENIE's characters are a true reflection of the darkly ironic mind of the director and the film overall is a paean to the meticulous craft of stop-motion..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Burton has expanded the story cleverly and meaningfully, and the feature feels less like a remake than the self-actualization of a great idea."

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t has zealous energy....The charm of a boy and his dog retains its appeal."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[T]he gorgeous, black-and-white stop-motion film is a fresh, clever and affectionate love letter to classic horror movies."
    Washington Post

    "[W]ith beautifully crafted animation...[and] the added bonus of a somehow naturalised 3D."
