Directed by: Tim Burton

Release Date: October 5, 2012

Very Nightmare Before Christmas or Coraline like, Tim Burton returns to direct another stop-motion feature film for our enjoyment. Based on the Frankenstein tale but when Victor was a kid and had a dog that suddenly dies, he uses science to bring it back to life. According to IMDB, Burton durected a live-action short of the same concept and name back in 1984, starring Shelley Duvall, Daniel Stern, and Barret Oliver. Obviously, since this film will be about an hour and a half longer, it will expand on the story and most likely change a lot of it. All of the stop-motion movies are always cool and entertaining for the look and style, so I am very interested in this one and definitely would love to see it in theaters. As you might have noticed, the whole trailer was in black in white. Not only is the trailer in black and white, but all fo the stills and the posters on IMDB are in black and white. This pretty much saying the movie will be in black and white, which is a nice twist.

We also have another stop-motion film coming out soon, ParaNorman, which comes out August 17 of this year from “the makers of Coraline”. Be sure to see the trailer review for that too here:
