ParaNorman (3D)

It's all fun and games until someone raises the dead.


ParaNorman (3D)
This 3D stop-motion animated film from the guys behind Coraline is not really suitable for very young kids, due to the subject matter. A small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, 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.

87 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 10.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconGreat horror for the whole family.

Die Burger
François Bloemhof quote iconVir kinders met hare op tande.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconParticularly those who love their spectacular animation served with just a dash of the comically macabre.
15
Box Office
Sara Maria Vizcarrondo quote iconParaNorman is easily one of the most charming, imaginative and quirky comedies to come out of Laika Entertainment (Coraline), but for all its cleverness and urbane wit, it's in no way appropriate for kids.
5
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBrit screenwriter Chris Butler and his co-director, Sam Fell, lace the fun and fright with keen visual wit. And they don't back off tough themes such as loneliness and death. My advice? Just go with ParaNorman. There's magic in it.

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile it likely won't go down in the annals of animated films as a great entry, it's nonetheless a clear and solidly entertaining effort from start to finish.

Tomatometer quote iconBeautifully animated and solidly scripted, ParaNorman will entertain (and frighten) older children while providing surprisingly thoughtful fare for their parents.
