Arriving just in time for Halloween, Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie" hits theaters on October 5th.

Tim Burton fans can get a sneak peak of the film today as Walt Disney Pictures has released a new clip featuring the Frankenstein-inspired origin of the flick's undead canine star, sparky.

Walking the line between creepy and cute, "Frankenweenie" is the heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved furry friend, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his buddy 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.

The movie features the voices of Winona Ryder, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Landau, Charlie Tahan, Atticus Shaffer, Robert Capron, and Conchata Ferrell. Watch the new clip below.
