Paranorman is about a young boy named Norman who happens to see dead people. Sadly, many people don’t believe him and he is considered an outcast because of it. When a centuries old curse comes back to haunt the town, Norman must team up with an eccentric group of characters to find a means to break the curse once and for all.
Paranorman is one of the best animated films in the last fifteen years. It is perfect for Halloween because of the aspect of ghosts, zombies, witches, and an evil curse. This movie can be scary and or intense to the youngest of audiences. Deep inside, the movie is about so much more. It addresses a problem within our schools and overall society.
I find Paranorman to have a great voice cast and a powerful ending. Definitely has a unique animation style which Laika has becoming synonymous with.
If you have a kid or are a kid at heart, I strongly suggest watching Paranorman this October.
