Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend.
This is surprisingly dark, and underrated. While the animated characters are almost grosteque in their stylization, it serves fairly well when it comes to the undead. It also pushes the boundaries of it being a “kid’s” movie or an “adult’s” movie in it’s content. So this is probably a movie for “older younger” audiences.
Not only is this a great concept, effect execution, and story, the characters that do pop, really do. I honestly could have done without a few of them, but most of the important characters work for what they need to do.
There is a much appreciated “twist” that examples some self-aware story telling that comes with the tropes typically involved with “I see dead people” stories. Its really rather refreshing without removing the idea that burning witches at the stake was an atrocity in history.
The story is touching and charming and just requires an open mind, which is part of the message of the story.
Mom, tell the Zombie to stop saying stuff about me!
The medium of animated films has really gone through the roof in the last 20 years. There was a time when Disney was the only reliable source for such colourful frolics. Now we are blessed with a whole raft of film makers creating their own animated films born out by their personal visions. One of the benefits of this “branching out” has been the rise in the animated horror comedy, right up there with the best of them in recent times is ParaNorman.
Norman Babcock is considered to be the weird kid in town, you see he claims to see ghosts. Little do the residents of this New England haven know it, but they will soon need Norman to break a centuries old witches curse or they are all doomed!
Picture unfolds in a delightfully quirky nature, with the makers showing great love and respect to both the genres it appertains to. As with the best animated films, ParaNorman manages to be an all encompassing family friendly production. The chilly thrills are the right side of child friendly, the animation craft superb, while the humour is smart and the Gothic atmosphere surrounding the tale is pitch perfect. It all builds nicely to a bona fide thrilling finale, where the visual spectacle sits comfortably with the emotional beats of the film. Lovely, intelligent and spooky into the bargain. 8/10
ParaNorman…3 out of 4 Skittles
Laika Entertainment, the stop-motion studio behind the modern classics Corpse Bride and Coraline, are back with their latest spooky tale, ParaNorman. Like its predecessors, ParaNorman is a beautiful claymation wonder. Every single frame is filled with such a vast amount of detail it would take several repeat views to catch all the hidden gems.
ParaNorman is also filled with humor. The talented voice actors that bring the clay characters to life provide most of the laughs. From Anna Kendrick’s (Up In The Air, 50/50) ditzy cheerleader, to Casey Affleck’s (Gone Baby Gone, Ocean’s Eleven) dumb jock, to Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, Kick-Ass) getting to play against his ‘McLovin’ typecast as the angry school bully. But the biggest laughs by far are dished out by child actor Tucker Albrizzi who is perfectly cast as the voice of Norman’s chubby best friend, Neil.
ParaNorman is a visual and comedic force. Despite the tedious and demanding workload and easier computer rendering technology, Laika Entertainment continues the tradition of making stop-motion movies the hard way. With films as stunning as ParaNorman hopefully the technique will live on forever.
Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is a young horror movie fan who is able to see and talk to ghosts, a talent that sees him labelled as a freak; but when his town is threatened by zombies, the result of a 300 year old curse by a witch, Norman gets the opportunity to show that being weird isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Want to introduce your littluns to the concept of the living dead (and why wouldn’t you? Zombies are cool!) but don’t reckon they’re ready for a Romero or Fulci gore-fest just yet? Then ParaNorman is just what you need—a fun, mildly frightening family flick featuring seven groovy, shuffling, centuries-old corpses, plus lots of other slightly scary supernatural shenanigans and an important life-lesson about tolerating others, however strange they might seem.
There are loads of genuinely laugh-out loud gags (just thinking about Norman trying to remove a book from his dead Uncle’s hands is making me giggle), quite a few thrills, a heart warming resolution, and perhaps most importantly, rotting walking cadavers with bits dropping off them, all of which make this perfect viewing for any young horror-fan-in-training.
