From animation company LAIKA who brought you the Academy Award® nominated Coraline, ParaNorman is a clever and hilarious adventure that will thrill, spook and enthral the whole family.
ParaNorman is the story of a misunderstood local boy Norman, who is shunned and bullied because he can see ghosts and speak with the dead. However, it seems Norman is the only person who can save the town when the spirit of a witch hanged 300 years ago raises her Puritan accusers as rampaging zombies, complete with green complexions, bad teeth, detachable limbs and a macabre disposition.
Featuring an all-star voice cast, ParaNorman celebrates diversity as Norman takes on ghosts, zombies, witches and worst of all, grown‐ups, to save his small‐minded town from a centuries‐old curse and the limitations of their social inclusion.
The film is visually exquisite, turning every scene into an occasion for discovery and delight. ParaNorman is a stunning patchwork of engaging narrative and a myriad of visual enchantments, from the rich tactility of Norman's clothes to the skull-and-crossbones adorning his bedroom wallpaper. With its universal themes and child-like vitality, the film revels in the importance of weirdness, eccentricity and proud personal distinction.
