When young Victor&#39s pet dog Sparky (who stars in Victor&#39s 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&#39s neighbors, he has to convince them (and his parents) that despite his appearance, Sparky&#39s still the good loyal friend he&#39s always been.
