The comedy thriller’s story centers on a small town under siege by zombies. Who can the town call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul-whisperer bravely summons up all that makes a hero — courage and compassion — as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
ParaNorman features a stellar voice cast including Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tucker Albrizzi, Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, Jeff Garlin, Elaine Stritch, Bernard Hill, Jodelle Ferland, Tempestt Bledsoe, Alex Borstein, and John Goodman. The film was produced by Arianne Sutner and Travis Knight, written by Chris Butler and directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler.
