With the recent surge of animated horror flicks on the horizon, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is right at the top spot for me. The film just looks like a true labor of love that will hopefully please us horror fiends among all the kid friendly antics.
So to give you guys a better taste, we have scored a brand new TV spot which you can check out below. Let us know what you think.
The voice cast features familiar Burton alumni such as; Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), joining them are Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer.
Synopsis: “A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
A stop-motion animated film, ‘Frankenweenie’ will be filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience.”
Look for the film this October 5th.
