The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Frankenweenie (2012)

Starring: Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, Winona Ryder, Martin Landeau, Atticus Shaffer
Director: Tim Burton

After his dog (which is also his best friend) gets hit by a car, a kid tries to revive him for a science project. However, several unintended things happen afterwards.

My Take:
A fine family film with constant nods back to classic horror monsters and a good message. Fantastic animaton too. There's a lot more going on here than what you may have seen in the previews and I was pleasantly surprised.

Rating: So Good
