What is it about stop motion animation with a spooky story that works so well? (Think ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’, ‘Coraline’ and ‘Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit’). It’s that great creaky, imperfect (hand-made) animation that does it for me. That’s why I’m really looking forward to ‘Paranorman’. It’s a big-budget stop motion film that is set to impress cinema goers the world over.
For enthusiasts, I’d recommend viewing this video. It’s always incredible to see the amount of talent and effort (not to mention time) that goes into a movie like this.
