I wasn't sure whether to see Frankenweenie or Hotel Transylvania. Frankenweenie is dark, violent, and NOT for kids. I took my 8 yr old daughter and my 6 yr old twin boys and the kids couldn't handle it. Other kids in the theatre were crying as well. I should've known better...after all...it is Tim Burton! I personally think it's for 12 yrs old and up..should've gone to see Hotel Transylvania instead.
