This movie is mainly for the kids and hard core Tim Burton fanatics... Or so I thought. The idea is a basic Frankenstein plot with obvious character substitutions. Tim Burtons puppet-animation style works extremely well here and the resurrected horror / tension elements really hit it home. This short and captivating movie probably suits well as a kids first "horror" film. And of course this is a good date movie. Should be easy enough to digest.
The movie is a very nice interpretation of the tale of Frankenstein. I thought this would be children's movie with several Disney singing songs. But I'm glad I was wrong. Well, there was one song, but it was creepy enough. Black, white and grey colour scale suited to movie perfectly. This is a horror movie for children, but the movie was good and a heart warming story progressed nicely. You may also spot some references to old horror movies. Now I'm curious to see the original short version of Frankenweenie.
