Victor (Charlie Tahan) is a reclusive young schoolboy whose best friend is his dog Sparky. They play together constantly and Victor enjoys making home movies where he employs Sparky as a monster. One day a game of fetch sadly leads to Spark's untimely death. But Victor is an enterprising sort, and using his mysterious science teacher Mr. Rzykruski (Martin Landau) as inspiration he attempts to bring Sparky back to life. To his joy, it works – although Sparky doesn't look quite as he used to. Wanting to hang onto his friend this time, Victor hides his re-animation from his parents but it isn't long before the other kids in the neighbourhood discover his secret. With a big science fair coming up, the kids follow Victor's lead and the town's pet revenants begin to cause trouble.
