Who else but Tim Burton would think of making a stop-motion 3D horror film in black and white? Only Burton could envision this Frankenstein-inspired tale of a boy named Victor (voiced by Charlie Tahan) who invents a machine to bring his dog Sparky back from the dead. It's not just his parents (Martin Short and Catherine O'Hara) who are horrified. Burton made Frankenweenie as a live-action short in 1984. Now he brings his imagination into full animated play and it's a knockout.
