Responsible for stylish action films like Batman, bizarre love stories like Edward Scissorhands and Academy Award-winning comedy dramas like Ed Wood, director Tim Burton, with this Friday's release of Frankenweenie, takes a very personal turn with a tribute to classic horror films, intricately crafted in 3D and black and white stop-motion.

Not at all unlike Victor, the young hero of the film, Burton serves a bit of a mad scientist, bringing new life to his 1984 short film of the same name. The spooky adventure begins when Victor Frankenstein loses his dog, Sparky, to a tragic car accident and decides to push the boundaries of natural order, harnessing the power of electricity to bring Sparky back to life. Although Victor's experiment seems to go off without a hitch, the secret return of Sparky can't stay hidden and soon all the children in the neighborhood decide to bring about their own monstrous pets.

Reuniting actors from past films, Burton's voice cast includes Winona Ryder (Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice), Martin Short (Mars Attacks!), Catherine O'Hara (Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Martin Landau (Ed Wood) as well as newcomers Charlie Tahan (as Victor) and Atticus Shaffer (as Victor's friend, Edward E. Gore).

ComingSoon.net had the chance to speak with Burton and his cast. Check out the video interviews in the player below (in spine-tingling black and white!) and catch Frankenweenie in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters this Friday, October 5.
