Check out two clips from Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie”, a film that is sure to warm your hearts. Or at least, make you think twice about your dead dog buried in the backyard. Daddy didn’t mean to run ol Buster over. Honest.
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.
