TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 15 August 2013
I rented this for my partner's kids to watch on their last visit. They are aged 7 and 8 at time of writing, however I think this film is suitable for all ages. My partner and I both enjoyed it, probably as much as the kids did!
Paranorman does not have a typical kiddie film plot, it actually has something in common with the Sixth Sense as the main character, Norman, can "see dead people". This makes him a bit of an outcast with his family, and he is seen as a weirdo in school. I was impressed by how well the film handled the subject of death and the afterlife, sensitive subjects for any age but especially for children. As the story progresses, it becomes apparent that the town in which Norman and his family lives, is under a "witches curse" and Norman has the ability to save everyone. Oh, and there are zombies, but don't worry, they are not at all scary, honest.
A very young child might possibly be afraid of the zombies and the witch but I can't really see anyone having nightmares over this film, and of course all ends well which should be enough to put most kids minds at rest even if they were a little unsure prior to the ending.
Overall I think this film tells an interesting story well, it looks fantastic, the character of Norman is very likeable and the story ends well. The kids really liked it and I did too so we will most likely get our own copy in the near future. Recommended.
