Paranorman

A ‘sixth sense’ for the animated world, this film walks the tight rope between the two films mentioned above (dark and feel good). Norman is blessed (or cursed) with an ability to see dead beings and animals. Wait, not only see, but have full blown conversations (and interactions) with them!

He is then faced with the town curse, a witch and her 7 culprits, who sentenced her to death hundreds of years ago. How will Norman help, is the question? Aptly answered with some funny animation, gory in a spoof kind of way, dealing with a very complex issue, but hey, kids nowadays are bombarded with so much info, why not this?

The end result, is a decent flick. I wouldn’t call it a must watch, but a can watch.

2.5/5
