What do you do when your dog gets run over by a car and sent to Doggy Heaven? Well, if Pet Sematary is full, you go all Frankenstein on the dog and bring him back to life as … Frankenweenie!!! Or some such. Anyways, there’s a lot very wrong with this trailer for Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie”. I mean, it’s cute, but it’s also kind of creepy. Okay, it’s very creepy. But maybe that’s just me. I just don’t think you should be bringing things back from the dead. Call me crazy. What do you think?
When young Victor’s pet dog Sparky is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked “monster” wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor’s neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky’s still the good loyal friend he’s always been.
Featuring the voices of Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Conchata Ferrell, Atticus Shaffer, Martin Short, Tom Kenny, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Robert Capron, and James Hiroyuki Liao.
