Frankenweenie: a 1984 stop-motion animation by Tim Burton

Not long after the recent cine-remake of the 1960s TV series, Dark Shadows, which starred the effervescent Johnny Depp, comes another grotesquely gorgeous stop-motion animation, Frankenweenie, directed by the bizarre Tim Burton. Frankenweenie was originally written by Burton in 1984 and is a parody of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. After 28 years, it will be shown in theaters in October. Before watching the full length, make sure you give its 30-minute version a view first. Check out young Sofia Coppola’s cameo in it, too.
