‘Frankenweenie’ Pays Homage to Classic Horror Films in New Trailer — VIDEO


It’s no secret that Tim Burton is a fan of all things classic and horror. His films have always had that element in them–whether literal or implied. And with the newest trailer unveiled at Comic-Con forFrankenweenie, he takes it one step further with an adorably whimsical take on those old films. It’s a perfect match–the horror of reanimating the dead, coupled with the storyline of man’s best friend. If you’re a fan of old-school horror films, this will definitely make you laugh and smile: maybe not what those old movies meant to do, but it works here, now! Especially the music; it’s all a perfect complement to the Frankenweenie aesthetic and storyline. We think you’ll find it “thrilling!” and “spectacular!” but that’s just our old-timey movie fan that lives in our pocket talking.
