Tim Burton put a werewolf in his “Frankenweenie” remake, and this is what it looks like

A. Quinton — Aug. 13th 2012

I stopped paying attention to Tim Burton’s output after Corpse Bride, but my interest in the remake of his own 1984 short film Frankenweenie has been piqued by the photo set Bloody Disgusting just posted. The first two photos are of Sparky, the titular re-animated dog, and the third shows Edgar “E.” Gore and someone who might be Elsa van Helsing reacting to a werewolf at a carnival. The werewolf looks like a feral descendent of the Wolfman from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and although he’s unlikely to play a major role, his appearance has significantly increased my interest in seeing Frankenweenie when it comes out October 5th.

    Heh, Burton werewolves always look like were-rats. It’s cute, anyways.

  • I just wish film companies would encourage some new ideas instead of remakes. *getting tired of reruns* There are just so many good ideas out there.

    Well, in this case Burton is remaking — and greatly expanding upon — one of his own short films, so I’m willing to give him a little leeway here.
