The Frankenweenie Trailer looks awesome and I can’t wait to show it to my kids in my ongoing quest to make them tiny copies of ME. Soon they will appreciate the weird and slightly macabre madness of Tim Burton. I love that stuff.
Directed by Tim Burton, Frankenweenie is scheduled for a October 5th 2012 release date. It looks like this black and white stop motion animation is a remake of Tim Burton’s 1984 version of Frankenweenie. I would imagine just with better filming techniques and some better CGI.
After the death of his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring him back to life(Zombie DOG!). Victor tries to hide his creation, but Sparky gets out and causes havoc in the town.
This is an homage to the movie Frankenstein 1931, and I know I’ll take heat from zombie “Purists” out their when I say Frankenstein’s monster is a zombie and therefore Frankenweenie is a zombie dog. Come on, People! This goes under the category of “The Constructed” zombie type if ever I saw one.
