The makers of 'Coraline' (2009) return with this Academy Award-nominated animated adventure about a boy who can talk to ghosts. Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) is ostracised by his family and bullied at school because of his odd behaviour. What none of them know is that he is in continual dialogue with the ghosts, ghouls, vampires and zombies that prowl his neighbourhood unseen. However, when the town comes under threat from a centuries-old curse, it is up to Norman to save the day. The film also features the voice talents of John Goodman, Casey Affleck and Anna Kendrick.

I had pretty high expectations going into ParaNorman, the new stop-motion animated film from the makers of Coraline. I thought the movie looked very good from the trailers and it looked like that this would be a very good one. And, I was totally right. I actually thought ParaNorman was more than just good; it was excellent, funny, and wickedly entertaining. This film is filled with humor and action that references many classic horror movies, and as a result, almost seems ready made for a cult-following.

Norman is a strange kid. He can see ghosts, and as a result he is made fun of by his classmates, disowned by his teenage sister and misunderstood by his parents. However he makes friends with Neil, who gets made of equally because he is fat. The town is celebrating it's 300th anniversary; however, the town has a dark past where an evil witch killed the men that put her to death. Norman's eccentric uncle tells the child that he must put the witch's ghost back to sleep or all hell will break loose. Of course Norman can't do it in time, and of course all hell breaks loose. The seven men that the witch killed come back from the dead in Zombie form, and Norman, along Neil, their older siblings, and the school bully, run through town trying to stop it all before anyone gets hurt. Despite what I just described the film was very lighthearted and very amusing, younger kids will enjoy this as well as adults.

The stop-motion animation in this was simply wonderful to look at. The setting, the characters, and the look of the film were literally spot-on. The characters were really likable, funny, caring and very believable. The story was well-written, really well-paced, funny, thrilling, exciting, at times interesting, and at times emotional.

Norman is not normal - he can see dead people. And he talks to them as well. He sets out on a quest to save his home town of Blithe Hollow from a centuries-old curse, and if he fails the town will be invaded by Zombies. Together with unexpected new companions, Norman struggles to save his town, only to discover the horrific truth of the curse.

Made by the same creators of CORALINE, this doesn't break any new ground and can't quite match it for fear-factor but it offers more in the way of humour. My daughters found it funny but rather formulaic and a bit of a mish-mash of ideas and concepts seen in other films such as Corpse Bride, A Nightmare Before Christmas and in particular Monster House (their favourite of this quartet). It is of course brilliant animation but since we are spoiled with such high standards with almost every animated film these days, it has to be said that it doesn't stand long in the memory. It's good but it's not exactly unforgettable; watchable for sure but not a Blu-ray film that has been watched repeatedly since we bought it. In fact we've had it a month and it has only been watched the once - for me a reliable indicator of just how this film rates against its peers. Seems harsh to give it only 3 stars for being merely 'okay' but the fact is : my daughters haven't shown any interest in repeat viewings as has usually been the case with other animated films I have bought for them.

To its credit though, you do get the full works - not just a Blu-ray disc but a separate DVD as well, and not one but two digital formats as well including an UltraViolet copy.

Format: Blu-ray
Wildly creative and technically terrific, there is much to admire in this animated play on traditional zombie films. But unlike “Coraline” – made by some of the same people – or the other Tim Burton/Henry Selick macabre animated works, there’s a certain lack of soul and emotion here that keeps it from climbing to the heights of those films.

There’s also an odd unevenness of tone. While it has a few really inspired visual and verbal gags, it switches a bit awkwardly back and forth between being almost over-earnest, and a kind of hip, ironic distanced humor. And much of the plot feels familiar and/or predictable.

Part of the struggle for me as an adult is that this is really made for ‘tweens. Too scary for little kids, it also limits the film a bit on the older side. It can’t work as easily for adults as some ‘kids films’ (ala Pixar, etc), where 8 years olds can enjoy it while 30 or 40 year olds can get it on a whole different level. I bet 11 year olds would flat out love this, but unlike the films mentioned earlier, I felt a bit left out of the fun. Still, it has it’s moments, both of humor and heart, and I’m glad I saw it. I just don’t know that I’d ever go back for seconds.

Format: DVD
Norman sees and talks to dead people. He is tasked to stop the curse of the town's witch trail from centuries ago. In his school, kids who talk to dead people get bullied. The characters are stereotypical.

The beginning of the movie has a spoof of "B" zombie films that was very clever, down to the boom mike making it into the picture. I enjoyed this movie more than the famous Tim Burton productions. While there is nothing wrong in this film per se, there are some things parents might want to know. In one sentence, belief in life after death is equated to belief in astrology. Also the hot guy liked by teen Courtney mentions his boyfriend, shades of "Call Me Maybe."

The people who killed the young witch were wrong, they were considered simply afraid. There are no religious elements associated with the witch trial.

If I was gong to improve this film, I would of had Betty White play grandma and written her character appropriately. Comedian Jeff Garlin as the dad did a great voice.
