Here we have the trailer for Frankenweenie, Tim Burton’s stop-motion remake of his own short from 1984 (not to be confused of course with Frankenpenis, a 1996 adult film starring John Wayne Bobbit). Featuring the vocal talents of Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau, and Tom Kenny, it hits theaters October 5th, and it promises to be Tim Burton like you’ve never seen him before! …Hold on, I’m being handed a memo… Sorry, check that. It’s Tim Burton exactly how you’ve seen him before. Sorry for the confusion.

I can’t be the only one who thought that tail kind of looked like a creepy zombie penis.

“When you lose someone you love, they never really leave you, they just move into a special place in your heart. the ground.” Fixed!

Also, why is the dog all stitched together? Did they chop him up in pieces before they buried him? That’s dark, man.
