Director Tim Burton goes back to one of his earliest creations to update it with elaborate 3D animation in this bizarre but engaging fantasy. Mourning the loss of his beloved dog, a youngster (voice of Charlie Tahan) uses scientific means to restore life to the canine ... and once others find out, they want to reapply the technique to their own deceased loved ones.
Earlier Burton collaborators Martin Landau ("Ed Wood"), Winona Ryder ("Edward Scissorhands") and Catherine O'Hara ("Beetlejuice") also are in the voice cast. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; live-action "Frankenweenie" short subject; "Captain Sparky vs. The Flying Saucers" short subject. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
