“A ghoulish delight! The quick-witted script and visual puns make this a zombie movie for kids, but one parents can enjoy.” – Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
In the frightfully funny animated adventure ParaNorman, 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, clueless grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer will soon find his paranormal activities 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, this ghoulishly grand comedy/thriller from the makers of Coraline is wicked fun for the whole family, served up with eye-popping stop-motion animation. (Dir. by Chris Butler and Sam Fell, 2012, USA, 92 mins., Rated PG)
