ParaNorman review

Film description

Zombie movies get a stop-motion makeover in ParaNorman, an animated flick with pleasing shades of Coraline and Monster House.

ParaNorman (see what they did there?) will see plucky young Norman - who can communicate with the dead - become his city's only hope for salvation against an undead invasion.

We fell in love with ParaNorman from the release of its first trailer which won us over with stop motion zombies and its Shaun Of The Dead-like charm.

Are you excited for its 14 September 2014 release? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.

      I heard about this film just now and I already think that it is a bad idea. A self aware zombie comedy is exceptionally hard to pull off. I doubt the people directing this film have the talent of the people who worked on Zombieland or Shaun of the Dead. A zombie film for children just seems like an exceptionally bad idea. The fact that is similar to Monster House is not really a positive thing in my opinion. This film seems like it will try to do the job of a kid's movie and a zombie film and fail at both.
