Much to the chagrin of his father (Martin Short), young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) is not a sporty kid. He’s a bookish ten year-old who rides around the town of New Holland on his bike. He prefers to spend his time making stop action movies which he screens for his family. His best friend is his dog, Sparky. But Victor is a bright kid and he enjoys his imaginative world.
Fans of Tim Burton will recognize the classic dark/gothic look of this film as an extension of his past films. There are few directors working today who can top Burton when it comes to creating a visually rich and unique world on film that totally sucks you in. Where else but in a Burton film can you find a cat which poops out predictions? Or an invisible goldfish?
