Plot & Details

From creative genius Tim Burton ('Alice in Wonderland', 'The Nightmare Before Christmas') comes Frankenweenie, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life-with just a few minor adjustments.
