Tim Burton brings his signature style to this charming stop-motion animated tale about a young boy, Victor Frankenstein (voiced by Charlie Tahan), who unexpectedly loses his dog Sparky. Determined to bring him back to life, he sets up a laboratory in his attic and manages to stitch him up and reanimate the beloved creature. But when Sparky gets loose, the entire town learns that getting a new "leash" on life can be monstrous. Burton favorites Winona Ryder, Martin Landau and Catherine O'Hara also lend their voices to the film, and Danny Elfman is on hand to provide the score. Special features include an all-new, original short featuring Victor and Sparky's home movie, Captain Sparky vs. The Flying Saucers; the original, live-action Frankenweenie short film by Burton and much more.
