Description

From creative genius Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes Frankenweenie on Blu-ray 3D, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog.

After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to lifewith just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victors fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new leash on life can be monstrous. A stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.

Frankenweenie Movie Reviews

“Frankenweenie was described as "underperforming” in its early weeks of release. The American website IndieWIRE called it Burton's second flop in a row. (Dark Shadows being his previous film.) The film is, perhaps, misunderstood. Some reviews have said we've seen Burton cover similar territory before. That's a bit like saying Usain Bolt has a tendency to run really fast every time he enters a race. There's nothing wrong with doing what you're good at, with slight variations. When we pay to see a concert, we feel jilted if familiar songs from the artist's repertoire are not performed. And yet, a filmmaker is tacitly expected to break new ground each time the camera rolls. As he did in The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride, Burton continues to mine horror film iconography. Frankenweenie is sweet and silly but is marbled with moments of fright and melancholy. We almost certainly remember Frankenstein's mon­ster, King Kong and other misunderstood not-strictly-human outsiders because we sympathise with the way they're hunted down…The only thing 'wrong’ with Frankenweenie is that there's no special reward for sitting through the closing credits — except, of course, the chance to read the names of the talented people who made this charming confection." SBS Aus

“Burton’s finest, freshest film in ages is a welcome homecoming. You’d call it patchwork pastiche, if it weren’t so zapped with energy, feeling and imagination. It’s alive!” Total Film

“Frankenweenie is good, not great. While it is beautiful to look at and a masterpiece in terms of technical achievement, it doesn't quite manage to capture the heart that made the short film it's based on so popular. With that said, while it doesn't connect with us the way it probably should have, it is at least a fun and entertaining picture with loads of style and atmosphere. Disney's Blu-ray release looks and sounds amazing.. making it easy enough to recommend.” DVD Talk

“A black-and-white stop-motion toon that pays loving tribute to Hollywood creature features of yesteryear, this beautifully designed canine-resurrection saga feels, somewhat fittingly, stitched together from stray narrative parts, but nonetheless evinces a level of discipline and artistic coherence missing from the director’s recent live-action efforts. Fusing gentle, sentimental emotions and a classically Burtonian obsession with all things morbid and macabre, Disney’s Oct. 5 release should fetch lively returns from devotees and general audiences of all ages.” Variety
