Frankenweenie Poster 2Tim Burton pays homage to classic horror films in the remake of his cult classic Frankenweenie


Walt Disney Studiosreleases the Tim Burton cult classic “Frankenweenie” in theaters today but this time as a full length feature film with claymation.

The original short film was released in 1984 and became a cult classic about a boy who looses his dog an d revives him in the way the Frankenstein monster was created. In this full length feature film Tim Burton decided to make it in the way he originally intended the film to be made. What makes the film so interesting is finding not only the images but characters from classic horror movies such as Boris Karloff as the Mummy and Vincent Price in the film.

Burton’s film may not be suitable for young children but the many film lovers would love the placement and design that you get to see on the big screen. The story starts and ends very well but in moments of the film it does slows down to pick up tempo again towards the end of the film.

Overall, “Frankenweenie” is a wonderful experience to see especially for many young children whom it may be their first time ever seeing a film in black and white. The 3D is done very well really enhancing the backgrounds and texture of the film. If you are looking for a great movie to see this weekend “Frankweenie” is a good bet.
