Top 5: Resurrected Film Characters

18 February 2013 9:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Academy Award nominated Frankenweenie tells the story of a boy called Victor who brings his beloved dog Sparky back-to-life. To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release of Frankenweenie, we take a look at other famous Academy Award nominated or winning films where characters are brought back-to-life.


Victor Frankenstein lives with his parents and dog Sparky who is his best friend. Concerned with his son’s isolation, Victor’s father encourages him to take up baseball. Victor hits a home run at his first game, but Sparky is killed by a car pursuing the ball. Inspired by his science teacher Mr. Rzykruski’s demonstration of the effect of electricity on dead frogs, a depressed Victor digs up Sparky’s corpse and successfully brings him back-to-life with lightning. When Sparky escapes from the attic the whole town faces the unexpected and electrifying truth of what happens when monstrous experiments run wild. »
