Synopsis

When Victor loses his beloved pet Sparky, he does not deal with the loss the way other children would. Instead, he conducts an experiment to try and bring the dog back to life. When he succeeds, the situation quickly escalates out of Victor's control. This is Tim Burton's second attempt at making Frankenweenie - the first was a 1984 live-action short, considered so bad by the Disney studio bosses that Burton was sacked. More than twenty-five years later they decided to let him have another go, with this feature-length black-and-white animation, littered with references to many of Hollywood's classic horror films.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
