CD Review: FRANKENWEENIE soundtrack

Tim Burton and his muse Danny Elfman keep doing their darndest to give life to the genie in a stop-motion bottle that was THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, first assembling the body pieces of THE CORPSE BRIDE, and now the doggie bits that comprise FRANKENWEENIE. And even if the public can’t quite seem to get Jack Skellington out of their minds, or ears, it doesn’t mean that this gleefully demonic duo isn’t applying a different shot of energy each time at winged bat (or winged cat-bat demon in this film’s case). Where BRIDE mainly drew life from the comedic opera stylings […]Read On »

While promoting his FRANKENWEENIE stop-motion animated movie at Comic-Con in San Diego, the director remembers the nervousness surrounding his vision and how it compares now with all these dark superhero movies hitting the theaters. “I recall back when we were doing BATMAN how people were worried that it was ‘too dark’, but now it looks like a light-hearted romp – BATMAN ON […]Read On »

It’s rare a filmmaker gets to revisit something they did when they were starting out, but most filmmakers aren’t Tim Burton. And with FRANKENWEENIE, he’s tackling a feature film incarnation of his 1984 live action short film he did for Disney. The original didn’t go over well, but now he’s bringing it to life in black and white, stop-motion and 3D and we says it was a thrill to go back into that world. “It’s a project that always meant something to me, so it was great to have the opportunity to do it stop-motion, black and white and expand […]Read On »
