Vampire Cats And Mummy Hamsters: Disney Debuts Six Monster Movie Posters For 'Frankenweenie'


Tim Burton's black and white stop-motion feature "Frankenweenie" is on the way this Friday, and Disney has unleashed a series of pet-themed horror posters to commemorate the release based on classic monster Universal movies.

While the kaiju-themed "Day of the Turtle" is a real standout, I, for one, would be very happy to pay monies to see "Return of the Vampire Cat" (where did the cat go? How did it come back?) or better still, some kind of monster mash battle royale featuring all of these cursed critters.

From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.

A stop-motion animated film, “Frankenweenie” was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which elevates the classic style to a whole new experience.
