Plot / Synopsis
When young Victor's pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor's home-made monster movies) is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked "monster" wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor's neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky's still the good loyal friend he's always been.

Frankenweenie Film Trailer Review
Tim Burton is back ready to scare the hell out of the 21st century children with Frankenweenie. To an adult perspective, Frankenweenie may very well be another kid's film, but if you carefully look pass that aspect, the ideas and the general dark presentation (theme) of the film is more likely aim for adults. It is perfect right? An animated film that everyone can enjoy.
Tim Burton has been known for his usually dark and quirky-themed movies which extends to Frankenweenie. If you lost someone dear to your life, it is only natural to want them back but of course it is not possible, but what if you can? That is what this stop motion animated film plays with. This time, Burton went with the animation to avoid possible conflict which his original 1984 Frankenweenie encountered: It was said that Burton was fired by Disney after the film was completed; the studio claimed that he had wasted company resources and felt the film was too scary for young audiences. But times are changing and so does kids tolerance with violence and dark themes. But to probably play safe, Burton may went with the 3-D stop motion animated remake.
