Family Movie: Frankenweenie

Stop by the library this Sunday @ 2 p.m. and catch Frankenweenie, our October Family Movie.

When young Victor's beloved dog, Sparky, is hit by a car, he is heartbroken... until his science teacher shows his class how electricity can be used to reanimate a dead frog. There's a science fair coming up, and the competition will be fierce. But Victor has more in mind than winning the grand prize for the best experiment. One dark and stormy night, Victor heads over the the local pet cemetery, shovel in hand. A flash of lightning later and Sparky is alive. Alive! Victor tries to keep his electrically-enhanced pet a secret, but soon the cat (or dog) is out of the bag and the whole town is in an uproar. When a gang of monstrous re-animated pets terrorizes the town, it'll be up to Sparky to save the day.

Frankenweenie (animated), directed by Tim Burton, is rated PG. This means all ages are welcome. However, there are some sad and scary parts that might disturb very young children. Stop by. It's an awesome movie. --AJB

  1. Just want to add: Although Frankenweenie may appear to be a new movie, it really isn't. This awesome stop-action animated movie is really a re-made and expanded version of a short film (barely 30 minutes) that Tim Burton made in the early 1980s using live actors (and it's quite the cast too!). You can see this version on the special two-disc version of Nightmare Before Christmas. Curious? should be.
