Norman has the ability to talk to dead people. This makes him an outcast, and really weird, so everyone is pretty mean to him. But someone else had this ability 300 years ago. In those days, instead of mocking and laughing at them, the custom was to burn them as a witch. A curse of zombies has been unleashed on the town, and it falls upon Norman to find out why, and who’s at fault, and to put a stop to it.

This animated film is really good. The trouble is that is will scare the bejeezus out of little kids. So this is not for the little tykes that are easily frightened, as there are some really scary moments in this movie. But certainly older children are going to love it. Older folks too, who like animation, are going to enjoy this movie too, I believe. It has an interesting story, that is easy to get into. It starts out a little slow, but as it picks up, you’ll get sucked into the story, and it’s really well portrayed. I have been waiting to see this one for a while, and I was not disappointed. It was one of the most original animated films of the year. A little different than the usual Disney/Pixar/Dreamworks animated films, this is not a musical. It’s drama from start to finish without music to get in the way. It’s all about the story. I liked it.

    Thank you for reviewing ParaNorman, Ed. I got the opportunity to watch it for the first time a few days ago. I have had a DISH Hopper DVR for a few months, and it can play 3D Pay Per View movies. Sadly, I didn’t get around to upgrading to a 3DTV until Christmas. It was pretty big, so I got a little help setting it up from one of my DISH coworkers. The movie was great. Our kids loved it, but I got absorbed by how great the 3D looked on my new home theater. With a Hopper DVR at home, I’ll never waste money buying another 3D movie ticket again.
