Film Friday

Yes! Just barely made it in Friday!

Another Halloween treat for ya’ll. A short little film:



Starring: Daniel Stern, Shelly Duval, Sofia Coppola, and directed by Tim Burton.

Plot: When young Victor's pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor's home-made monster movies) is hit by a car, Victor decides to bring him back to life the only way he knows how. But when the bolt-necked "monster" wreaks havoc and terror in the hearts of Victor's neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky's still the good loyal friend he's always been.

This was one of my brothers favorites when he was a kid. I don’t know why, but it took me until my later years to appreciate it for all it is. It’s one of those childhood gems that stays relevant forever. It’s a Disney and Tim Burton film for goodness sakes! It’s in black and white. Which I personally think adds that much more to it. And although I don’t own this one. I take solace in knowing that if I ever get the urge, I can just find it on YouTube (hint: I recommend doing that!)
