Let's see a main character that is misunderstood, laughed at, and generally loathed by the rest of the characters turns out to be the hero that will save the day. Hmm now where have I seen that kind of plot?

What the stop motion animated film lacks in original plot, it makes up for with its visual presentation. ParaNorman is a good-looking 3-D stop motion animated film, and although we have seen such kind of storyline before it still somehow intrigues me a bit. ParaNorman seems to reference various popular horror icons as seen in the trailer. It is "too cute" to simply put it and this might become an advantage or disadvantage for the film. Will it be just a kids film or a film for the whole family? What is this cursed that threatens the town? How can a mere kid who can talk to communicate with ghosts fend off a horde of the undead and ultimately save the day?
