Jon Brion's original score is a perfect companion for the film with a sublime mixture of melancholy and madness along the way.

[ParaNorman]... will entertain your whole family with its big, sweet, creepy heart.

The puppetry is impressive-the ghosts and zombies are a feast for the eyes-and the stop-motion is fluid.

It often feels as if it caters more to adults than kids, but I think the entire family can enjoy this one as long as your kids aren't too squeamish.

Expresses the message of the film in an audibly violent and impassioned way, displaying a level of bravery rarely seen in children's cinema.

"ParaNorman" spikes the adventure with truly sad and sobering moments dealing with real-life issues like bullying, death and the mob mentality.

An original feature about tolerance and understanding that just happens to have ghosts, zombies, a vengeful witch, and some of the most gorgeous stop-motion work I've seen in a while.

ParaNorman is just plain fun.

ParaNorman is a fun and rather sweet film which will subtly delight pop culturists and which asks some gentle questions about human nature.

By placing weighty, real world lessons aimed at kids in this specific cinematic world, the gloominess is only intensified.

Brings with it a very relevant and important moral that bears pondering by fans.
