About the Movie: A return to form for Tim Burton, Frankenweenie is a black and white 3-D feature length animated film based on Burton’s 1984 short of the same name. This short put him on the map as a director and helped him land the Pee Wee film and ultimately launch his career.  In the film, Young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences.
