"ParaNorman", the latest imaginative tale from the 3D stop-motion masters at LAIKA (the studio behind "Coraline"), opens in AMC theatres on August 17th and we can tell you that this is one that you're not going to want to miss. It is just as charming, unique, funny and, yes, heartwarming as you'd hope for from an animated zombie/coming-of-age comedy.
So when a box containing the very zombie slippers that young Norman wears in the film arrived on my doorstep the other day, I was as excited as a walking dead who stumbles into a Mensa luncheon.

The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company LAIKA, reteaming the company with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated "Coraline." "ParaNorman" is, following "Coraline," the company's second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In "ParaNorman," a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), 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. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
Sam Fell and Chris Butler direct a cast that includes Casey Affleck, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein, Jodelle Ferland, John Goodman, Bernard Hill, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Elaine Stritch.
