Paranorman: A Solid Movie with Impressive Visuals

by Michael Ward

HollywoodNews.com: After dazzling us with Coraline, it should come as a surprise to no one that Laika Stuidos newest film, ParaNorman would be at least a solid movie with impressive visuals. But man did they take it to the next level with this film. With ParaNorman, directors Sam Fell and Chris Butler manage to not only deliver beautiful visuals, but 90 minutes of an incredibly rich story filled with solid themes and great characterizations.

An uproariously funny homage to zombie films and 80s films like The Goonies, ParaNorman tells the story a boy named Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee) who has the ability to talk to ghosts. He’s picked on by a bully named Alvin and misunderstood by everyone, especially his parents. Already ostracized, he manages to make a friend named Neil, but at the same time come visions and a warning from his crazy uncle about a witch’s curse that will be enacted if he doesn’t read a story on the witch’s grave. Unfortunately for him hijinks ensue and the dead rise, leading Norman to team up with some unlikely people including his sister, his tormentor, his friend Neil and Neil’s brother Mitch to save the town from the zombies and the witch’s curse.
