New ‘Frankenweenie’ Posters A Throwback To The Creature Feature!

Frankenweenie

In Tim Burton’s absolutely fantastic Frankenweenie (read my review), a young Victor conducts a science experiment to bring his beloved dog Sparky back to life, only to face unintended, sometimes monstrous, consequences. In theaters October 5, Walt Disney Pictures has decided to tease the various “monsters” of Frankenweenie. Meet the several creations in these new throwback monster posters!

The voice cast includes four actors who worked with Burton on previous films: Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood, Sleepy Hollow), while Charlie Tahan and Atticus Shaffer were later added. Over 200 puppets and sets were created for the film, and that several of the character names—Victor, Elsa Van Helsing, Edgar “E” Gore and Mr. Burgermeister— were inspired by classic horror films.

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. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, ‘Frankenweenie’ was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.

    The cat poster reminds me of the old book “Grandpa’s Ghost Stories”. Loved that book.
