ParaNorman treats its viewers with respect, and is all the more wonderful for it.

Radio Times

The thrilling finale is a terrific blend of heartfelt emotion, surreal visuals and inventive ghostly spectacle, and the film's timeless message is put across in wonderfully ghoulish and surprising ways.

Is there such a thing as a gateway drug for horror films? If so, ParaNorman might be just the ticket.

[C]inema is nothing if not a fluid creature that has the power to affect us based on any number of variables. The climactic action sequence of ParaNorman is too busy from a visual standpoint, but its message shines loud and clear.

I can't imagine any kid who enjoys Halloween (I mean the holiday, not the movie) not being delighted by ParaNorman.

The Patriot Ledger

The only thing animated about it is the animation, which is so spectacular that you begrudge the script for not being equally inspired.

Badass Digest

PARANORMAN is ambitious and inventive, marvelously conceived, but the bulk of its value lies within the movie's open-minded philosophy.

Movies that set themselves firmly against bullying are great, but ones that play to horror fans are even better.

An extremely strange blend of genres and styles, ParaNorman somehow manages to pull it off...sort of.

Kids who can handle the bumps should find much to love in this beautifully animated ramshackle parcel, one that's packed full of detail, humour and positive messages.

2UE That Movie Show

ParaNorman is style, substance, [delicious] brains and a huge [cold dead] heart.

January 17, 2013

ParaNorman demonstrates - as did films such as Coraline, The Corpse Bride, Wallace & Gromit and The Nightmare Before Christmas - that stop-motion animation has a texture and warmth that can't (yet!) be replicated by computer.

I still liked ParaNorman and it deserves to be seen for its wit and the work of its passionate animators.

Bristling with energy, here's a delectable 3D film that's inventive, funny, devilishly ghoulish, loaded with splendid effects and a heartfelt story at its core

Cinema Autopsy

Funny, frightening, exciting and extremely thoughtful about the nature of the conflict at the core of the film, ParaNorman is a standout feature animation.

Time to Play Magazine

Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee) loves zombie movies, monster movies, and all other kinds of movies about dead people, the grosser and gooier the better.

Like its hero, this smart, funny and beautifully animated film achieves great things by daring to be different.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

For moviegoers who tend to look down their nose at horror films, ParaNorman offers proof positive that the genre that gets us screaming can also have real substance.
