Today is the first day of October, and to mark the occasion Disney has unveiled a batch of appropriately spooky posters for Tim Burton’s stop-motion animated feature Frankenweenie. The six posters boast some amusing artwork that’s inspired by classic monster movies, with titles such as “Day of the Turtle,” “Curse of the Mummy Hamster,” and “Return of the Vampire Cat.” The posters are a lot of fun, and I actually think it’d be great if Disney produced some short films based on these goofy creations.
Hit the jump to check out the posters, and click here to read Matt’s review of the film. The pic features the voices of Charlie Tahan, Winona Rider, Martin Short, Martin Landau, Christopher Lee and Catherine O’Hara. Frankenweenie opens in 3D on October 5th.
Here’s the synopsis for Frankenweenie:
From creative genius Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” The Nightmare Before Christmas”) comes “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
