ParaNorman is the second feature film from stop-motion animation studio Laika, the folks who brought Neil Gaiman’s creepy Coraline to the screen in 2009 (they also helped out on Corpse Bride and the animated segment of A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas). ParaNorman is a similarly spooky affair, full of wit, invention and artistry.

Norman sees dead people. He also chats with them, much to the consternation of his family and the ridicule of his peers. The only person who believes in his ability is his mad uncle, who entrusts him with a mission to protect their hometown from a three hundred year old witch’s curse that sees the dead rising from their graves.

The most striking thing about the film is its fantastic production design. »
