‘Frankenweenie’

by Giovanni Fazio

Director: Tim Burton
Language: English
Tim Burton’s heartwarming story of a boy and his dead dog. This spooky-cute animated film follows geek-boy Victor Frankenstein, whose only friend, his dog Sparky, is hit by a car. Victor resurrects Sparky from the dead, an experiment his classmates copy with disastrous results. Burton riffs amusingly on old Universal Horror/monster-movie tropes, and the film is stuffed to the seams with great gags. A bit dark for the little ones, but hey, it’s Burton.
