ParaNorman - Official Synopsis
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.

Based on the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman, the colorful and intriguingly animated film tells a bitter-sweet tale about an unlikely heroine. Having just moved to a new area, Coraline is bored and lonely. Her parents, engrossed in their work, shoo her away and leave her to her own devices. while exploring her new surroundings, Coraline discovers an alternate world that entices her to stay. Despite the glorious life this other world, complete with an other mother, offers, Coraline can feel that something isn't quite right.
