Are you ready for Halloween?
Are you ready for a little spooky fun?
Are you into Tim Burton?
Have you ever had a pet or wanted a pet?
Maybe you just love dogs?
If you answered yes to any of those questions then I have a movie that will have you entranced from the very beginning until the last credit leaves the screen.
Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein have a son named Victor and he has a dog named Sparky. Sparky and Victor are best friends as every dog and little boy should be. The create home movies in 3D and just do everything together. Victor wanted to do the Science Fair and his father wanted him to do sports. So he ended up having to do both. One day while playing baseball he actually hit the ball out of the field and well Sparky decided to catch it. Tragically he died.
So you know this going into the movie, nothing scary or gory this part is safe for kids to watch. You don’t watch him get hit by a car you just know it happened. It’s sad as you just fall in love with Sparky right away, but this is a Frankenstein movie you know, the dog comes back to life because Victor pays attention in science class. Once all the kids catch wind of what he did they replicate the science experiment. Then all chaos breaks loose. HA! It’s funny, spooky and a little creepy and all in good fun. The black and white adds to the spooky nature and enjoyment.
Be prepared to be amazed at how this is still a stop motion film in 3D. The special effects made me jump out of my seat twice, not really because I was scare but more because I was surprised. There were unexpected turns and twists and even the ending caught me by surprise. Frankenweenie is pretty cool and one of my favorite Tim Burton stop animation movies to date. Enjoy Frankenweenie on Friday October 5th.
Thanks to Disney for travel and accommodations to the premiere.
