"Frankenweenie" movie quotes take audiences on a spooky 3D animated adventure in the remake of the 1984 Tim Burton short film. Like the previous version, the 2012 "Frankenweenie," also produced and directed by Burton, parodies the Mary Shelly character of Frankenstein. Also like the 1931 "Frankenstein" movie, "Frankenweenie" was in black and white when it was released in IMAX 3D on October 5, 2012.
In "Frankenweenie," Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) is heartbroken when his best friend, family dog Sparky, passes away. A comment from his mother, Susan (Catherine O'Hara), about bringing Sparky back to life, along with an inspirational lesson on lightning from his science teacher, Mr. Rzykruski (Martin Landau), gives Victor an idea. His plan works and he manages to bring his beloved Sparky back to life.
Despite trying to keep the miraculous feat a secret, unfortunately for Victor, word of the incident leaks out and everyone else wants to revived loved ones once they hear. For some, this means reuniting with someone special but it doesn't always work as planned, as seen when creatures from sea monkeys to ginormous lizards appear in their quiet town. Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Atticus Shaffer and Robert Capron also lend their voices to this Halloween comedy horror.
