The surprisingly good venture into the macabre and demonic in the stop-motion animated film known as ParaNorman is full of both frights and laughs, in a tale that finishes up being as endearing as it is exciting. With precision on effects and careful attention to detail, the film is well worth your viewing time, full of tributes to classics, and memorable humor.
The story begins in the small town of Blithe Hollow, where Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is ostracized by family members and peers alike because of his unusual ability: he can see the dead and speak with them. Very few believe in Norman’s abilities, except for his mysterious Uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman), who has been watching the boy from afar.
ParaNorman has been getting a lot of positive buzz lately, but just in case you don’t know that a stop-motion animated film about a misunderstood kid who can communicate with the dead is coming out tomorrow, Laika Studios is releasing one more trailer to remind you that there is one.
This is an Internet special trailer and it won’t be released anywhere else. Check it out below.
