ParaNorman (2012) Norman is a child misfit with the ability to see and speak to the undead. When a centuries-old curse reawakens the dead in his small town, Norman finds himself as the unlikely hero to put old curses to rest.
I really love this film. Whilst it’s stop motion and appeals to kids, there’s a maturity to it, both in its understanding and parodying of the horror/undead genre and in its handling of some pretty unique characters. It’s funny, it’s smart and it has a whole lot of heart. 8/10.
