Bringing together leading talents behind Lexi-favourite Coraline and Flushed Away respectively, Chris Butler and Sam Fell had the credentials to do something special! Employing a unique hybrid of CGI and stop-motion technology, Paranorman tells of a town besieged by rudely awakened and rather irate zombies. The town’s only hope of salvation is Norman, a boy blessed with the ability to understand the zombies’ language. As he battles with ghosts, witches and moronic adults in addition to the living dead, Norman’s supernatural powers are entertainingly stretched to their limits, and the film’s breath-taking pace is further enhanced by stellar voicing from the likes of John Goodman, Elaine Stritch and Casey Affleck. Beautifully animated and solidly scripted, this will entertain children while providing surprisingly thoughtful fare for their parents.
