I believe you're missing something here... This is a Tim Burton film. Tim Burton movies are creepy and a lot of them are for kids. I saw Nightmare Before Xmas in theaters when I was 10. I hated it. I'm not a huge Tim Burton fan, either. But frankly, Frankenweenie is quite the masterpiece.

Burton's finest, freshest film in ages is a welcome homecoming. You'd call it patchwork pastiche, if it weren't so zapped with energy, feeling and imagination. It's alive! Full Review

While Frankenweenie is fun, it is not nearly strange or original enough to join the undead, monstrous ranks of the classics it adores. Full Review

It is pure, retro-cinematic joy. Full Review

He (Burton) has used that tonality deftly here, it keeps Frankenweenie visually stunning and the sensibility light. It's too bad the tale, like Sparky's wagging appendage, keeps falling off. Full Review

Frankenweenie is a love story between a boy and his dog. It is also a beautifully crafted homage to classic horror films, a study of grief and a commentary on the mysteries of science and those who narrow-mindedly fear its advances. Full Review
