The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company Laika, reteaming the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated "Coraline." "ParaNorman" is, following "Coraline," the company’s second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In "ParaNorman," a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), 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.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings
ALaika's new stop-motion animated film 'Paranorman' is a smart throwback to the Amblin' movies of the '80s, stylish and beautifully realized, although it may be too much for younger kids.
