    From the makers of Coraline comes the story of Norman, a boy who must use his ability to see and speak with the dead to save his town from a centuries-old curse. In addition to spooky zombies, he’ll also have to take on mysterious ghosts, wily witches and, worst, of all, clueless grown-ups. But this young ghoul whisperer will soon find his paranormal abilities pushed to their otherworldly limits. Featuring the voice talents of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin and John Goodman, it’s a frightfully funny and magically thrilling adventure for the whole family in eye-popping stop-motion.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Shame on all the "nay" say-ers. December 20, 2012
    This movie is a BEAUTIFUL example of animation, especially stop motion animation, of the highest quality; a true work of art.

    I am sad to see so many parents rating this film poorly for "inappropriate material". This movie has some of the BEST MATERIAL you should be teaching your kids! For one: There are no purely evil characters. There are characters who made bad choices, and feel regret. Too many films, especially film for children, paint humans as "purely good" or "purely evil" which only teaches them to judge their peers and elders harshly. This is a film which teaches children empathy towards their fellow humans. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amusing animation for the horror fan in all of us August 18, 2012
    "Coraline" was amazing. Even though its box office success wasn't nearly as impressive as it should have been and you rarely hear anyone bring it up whenever conversations turn to animated films, "Coraline" catered to both children and adults. It had this extremely dark undertone; children were having their eyes replaced with buttons. That's so gloriously morbid for a children's flick. There was also mild cursing, a creepy alternate world where everyone had a mirror self (with button eyes, of course), and a woman with a massive chest that was only covered by sea shells in one particular scene. It was just so unusual and extraordinary. Laika Entertainment, the studio behind "Coraline," has brought us "ParaNorman," which is certainly in the same vein and travels a similar path to greatness.

    "ParaNorman" is a stop-motion animated film that revolves around Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee); a young boy who can talk to dead people and is ridiculed because of it. Even his family doesn't believe in his gift, especially his dad Perry (Jeff Garlin) who refuses to think outside the box and gets angry at things he doesn't understand. Norman is picked on everyday by a thick-headed bully named Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and is mostly a loner until he gets to know a red headed boy named Neil (Tucker Albrizzi) who is bullied just as much as Norman but has learned to turn the other cheek.

    A strange man named Mr. Prenderghast (John Goodman) claims to share Norman's gift and under a strange set of circumstances passes the duty of keeping the witch's curse at bay for another year to Norman.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking January 2, 2014
    By Emily
    I saw this movie a long time ago but I never got around to reviewing it, so I'm doing it now. I gave this movie 4 stars because it was well written and visually stunning. All in all it was an ok Halloween movie. I also gave it 4 stars because I know my gripes with it probably stem from my being over sensitive and I wanted to give it a fair number. Having said that I found this movie genuinely shocking. From a writer's perspective revealing that the witch was actually a young girl of Norman's age with similar abilities who had been trialled and executed for witchcraft was in many ways a good turning point for the movie. But portraying what was essentially the murder of a child in a kids movie was just so inappropriate and confronting to me. I know it's a kids movie and I'm taking it way too seriously but those were very dark themes they portrayed. But I'm also aware that all that probably goes straight over kids heads and as a fan of the Lion King since I was little I really shouldn't judge it so harshly.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Halloween Movie October 21, 2012
    By AndreaF
    After seeing ParaNorman yesterday at the base theater, I have to say that I'm kind of surprised that there is such a controversy over the "message" of this movie. First, I don't think there was any type of nefarious message; the only message I gleaned from watching this movie was the usual "don't judge others" and "we're all different, we're all special" type of thing. Those are messages with which I agree. In fact, my husband and I instilled what ethics, morals and beliefs we felt were appropriate for our children with the hope that they would be productive members of society and independent thinkers. Doing such has made us confident that they are able to assess different situations and make good decisions on their own, regardless of what movies they watch, or books they read, etc.

    In other words, we're pretty confident that they can watch a children's movie and still retain what we've taught them.

    That said, I thought the movie was pretty good. I was kind of creeped out at some of the animation, which was very unique and well done. Some of the storyline was a bit dark, but I agree with other reviewers who noted that the darkness probably went over the heads of most children. Also, at this point I should admit that I was initially hesitant to take our daughter because I thought the premise had something to do with demons, but after looking up reviews and listening to my husband, I was wrong. My husband will now probably print out that last sentence and frame it, especially since he's the one who was... not... wrong. Erg!!

    Anyway, moving swiftly along --

    In my opinion, "ParaNorman" is a Halloween-type children's movie, and was enjoyable.
