and I absolutely loved it. The stop motion is amazing, the story and visuals are vintage Tim Burton, and the homages to various classic horror and monster movies made it all even more fun. I will say I took my 10 year old DD, who has a soft spot for animals anyway, and she did cry at one part. She also jumped once or twice but it wasn't too scary for her. Overall she liked the movie, but did feel that one part was very sad. I think it is more a movie for adults than children, but at the same time there were a lot of younger children in the theater and they did fine, although from the amount of noise I don't think it held their interest.
