Frankenweenie (3D)


Frankenweenie
Tim Burton's monochrome stop-motion 3D animated adventure has found favour with the critics and audiences alike. A loose variant of the Frankenstein story, revolving around a young boy whose dog dies. The boy uses electricity to bring it back to life. When his friends find out, they try the technique on all sorts of dead creatures, leading to a zombie monster rampage. It's up to our little hero to sort out the mess.

C. Fuchs quote iconFilled with nice and imaginative touches for monster movie buffs, Frankenweenie might be stitched together from many sources, but it mostly holds together for its nearly 90 minutes up on the screen.
