Frankenweenie

Tim Burton's classic short film from 1984 gets triple the running time as a feature length film and still has all of the heart and visual integrity of the original. Burton's love of the Universal Monsters shines through and using the Frankenstein story construct to deliver the tale of a young boy who wants his dog back after a tragic accident is shear genius. You will notice several Burton film regulars lending their voice talents to the characters like Martin Landau and Winona Ryder. Even a young Christopher Lee gets a cameo from one of his classic Dracula movies. I great little film and a must see for all Burton fans.
