what's the story

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, moronic 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. Following LAIKA’s groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated animated feature Coraline, ParaNorman is only the second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D.

ParaNorman is being directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler, from Mr. Butler’s original screenplay. Mr. Fell was director of The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away. Mr. Butler was storyboard supervisor on Coraline and storyboard artist on Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride.

You wait decades for an intelligent, visual stunning and hilarious stop-motion 3D animation about a little boy battling zombie hordes and, lo and behold, two come along at the same time. Next month, Tim Burton unveils his black and white childhood fable Frankenweenie, which has been selected as the opening night gala of the London film festival. This week, directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell spoil us with this beautifully crafted tale of a young misfit, who is blessed with the ability to see ghosts in his sleepy New England town of Blithe Hollow, where witches were once burned for their supposed crimes.
