As you saw from our reaction post made earlier today, we are pretty excited for Frankenweenie.
It’s a Tim Burton film that blends classic horror motifs (mostly from Frankenstein) with stop-motion animation and 3D effects. We’ve already seen twotrailers for Frankenweenie, but none of them paid homage to the classic horror films the way this new retro trailer does.
Check it out below.
Our very own Stoogeypeida praised the production for the film, citing out the vibrant black, white, and grey colors. With the way that the trailer was edited, Burton is clearly paying homage to the classic Universal horror films of yesteryear. It great to see that the black and white style is still respected amongst filmmakers, and if its used properly it can be a lot of fun to see.
Thanks to our friends at Disney for sharing this wonderful tribute trailer.
Burton had intended to release the film back in 1984, but due to budget constraints, the director was forced to make a live-action short. Frankenweenie features the voice talents of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, and Conchata Ferrell.
