When Tim Burton made a billion dollars and more  with Alice in Wonderland for Disney the roadkill kid returned in style.

Welcomed back to the fold with open chequebooks Burton set about laying the foundations to revisit an old friend whose presence is easily found in his filmography and whose story he had told once before.

Frankenweenie is perhaps the culmination of Burton’s work so far, many of the themes which his other films have maypoled around find their roots in this story. Given the chance to make his film of a boy and his dead/undead dog once before Burton’s 2012 stop-motion animation captures everything which made his fans fall for his work; the gloom and the gaudy are present and correct, the triumph of the outsider and, most importantly, there is a heartbeat.
