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. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
Great work went into making this movie, it looks great, but there is something missing...If you watch the live-action short from 1984 (included in the extras), it has heart, humor and a low-budget charm that is infectious. But the longer stop-motion version lacks the same appeal, and is strangely disturbing, mostly during all the animal deaths - at least to this viewer. I loved Corpse Bride and Ed Wood, two much better offerings.
