Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 10/01/2012
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Shot in glorious black and white and beautifully voiced, this magnificent stop-motion cartoon is alive -- 'it's alive! -- with laughs and heart. Hilarious, exciting, touching, scary and richly entertaining..."
Rolling Stone - 10/11/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] dark and dazzling spellbinder that scares up laughs and surprising emotion."
Total Film - 11/01/2012
4 stars out of 5 -- "Burton draws his world with palpable affection....It's an Easter egg parade or film-lovers, doing for classic Hollywood horror what THE ARTIST did for silents."
Los Angeles Times - 10/04/2012
"The artistry reaches absolute perfection. FRANKENWEENIE's characters are a true reflection of the darkly ironic mind of the director and the film overall is a paean to the meticulous craft of stop-motion..."
Movieline - 10/05/2012
"Burton has expanded the story cleverly and meaningfully, and the feature feels less like a remake than the self-actualization of a great idea."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/03/2012
3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t has zealous energy....The charm of a boy and his dog retains its appeal."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2012
"[W]ith beautifully crafted animation...[and] the added bonus of a somehow naturalised 3D."

Product Description:

Tim Burton's 1984 short film FRANKENWEENIE is resurrected for the big screen with this stop-motion 3D remake, which once again centers on a boy (Charlie Tahan) who reanimates his dead terrier and the suburban fallout that occurs because of it. BIG FISH screenwriter John August provided the script for the Walt Disney production.
