#Horror-#Comedy Movie #Review: Frankenweenie (2012) (#Family #Animation)


Frankenweenie (2012) is Tim Burton’s comedy-horror themed family animation. It is a tribute to early classics like Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and famous movie monsters like Godzilla, Mothra, King Kong and even the Gremlins. In the movie, a teenager inhabiting Tim Burton’s eternally gothic 1950s America loses his beloved family dog in a tragic accident and then sets about re-animating him. The boy’s name is Victor Frankenstein and the dog is called Sparky; you can work the rest out for yourself. Fun film for all the family especially for those with a fondness for old horror movies. My favourite character in the movie is Martin Landau as, Vincent Price-ish and delightfully strange, science teacher Mr. Rzykruski.
