Five Favorite Films with ParaNorman Directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell
Following the success of Henry Selick's wondrous Coraline in 2009, the team at Laika studios are back this week with their second animated feature, ParaNorman, another stop-motion marvel concerning the misadventure of a young outsider and his spooky connection to the land of the dead. Pitched as "John Hughes meets John Carpenter," it's written by Coraline and Corpse Bride animation artist Chris Butler and co-directed by Butler and Aardman alum Sam Fell, with voices by Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick and John Goodman, and music by Jon Brion. We had a chance to chat with Fell and Butler this week ahead of the movie's release, where they talked about five of their favorite movies -- and how they influenced the creation and execution of ParaNorman.

Even though he's in charge of the massive "Spider-Man" franchise and in the running for films like "The Hobbit," Sam Raimi always says he wants to make another "Evil Dead" film with Bruce Campbell. Campbell isn't quite as touched by that as one might think, and may suggest that it's not in the director's best interest to do so at the moment.

Sam Raimi is a bona fide mogul now with his Ghost House Pictures studio producing horror movies while he's off making "Spider-Man" movies. Back in the day, he needed Dino De Laurentiis's help to make the third "Evil Dead" film, "Army of Darkness."
