‘Frankenweenie’ Blu-ray Review
Director Tim Burton’s skewered riff on classic horror flicks
Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack ($39.99)
Director Tim Burton’s heartwarming puppy-love tale of a misfit boy and his dog is a skewered-silly riff on the classic horror and sci-fi flicks that sparked his own youthful imagination, especially “Frankenstein.” After losing his beloved pooch, Sparky, budding young inventor Victor harness the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—to some monstrous consequences in his suburban community. Bonus features include several making-of documentaries, plus Burton’s original live-action short film from 1984, with Shelly Duvall and Daniel Stern, on which last year’s expanded full-length animated movie was based.
