I thought this would be appropriate for the Halloween season:
Frankenweenie is a live action short film, 25 minutes long, shot in black and white. It is about a young boy, whose dog is run over. The kid, whose name is Victor, brings the dog, Sparky, back to life. However, the reanimated dog scares the neighborhood people, and Victor and Sparky must prove that Sparky is still a good dog.
