Paranorman (2012)

It won’t be until next August until we see what looks like a cool and different kid’s movie I can get behind. Paranorman “comes from the animation studio LAIKA (stop-motion studio behind Corpse Bride and Coraline). Featuring the voices of Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, John Goodman, Jeff Garlin, Leslie Mann, Casey Affleck, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, ParaNorman centers on a boy whose ability to commune with the dead when his town comes under siege from zombies, ghosts, witches, moronic grown-ups, and a centuries-old curse (Filmofilia).”


When a small town comes under siege by zombies, who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
