Have we learned no lessons from Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”? Nothing about the consequences of playing God and reanimating the flesh? The inevitable disasters that accompany messing with the lines between life and death and–ooh! cute puppy! Fine, you can’t blame young Victor Frankenstein (voice of Charlie Tahan) for bringing his beloved pup Sparky back to life in Tim Burton‘s Frankenweenie - the dog is the kid’s best friend, after all. And damn if this second trailer for the film doesn’t make zapping life back into the dead look easy…too easy.

Burton’s long-awaited feature take on the ‘weenie has already gifted us with one adorable trailer, but this longer take on some familiar material now presents a major obstacle for Victor and Sparky’s continued happiness – namely, pesky neighborhood kids who want to reanimate the dead too. Whatever happened to safe stuff, like playing video games and eating ice cream? It’s alive, it’s aliiiiiiivvvveeeee…after the break.

Frankenweenie opens on October 5th. [Apple]
