ParaAwesome!



ParaNorman
Not a review.
Paranormal is para-awesome!
NO, it doesn't have someone doing the para para sakura.
Though it would've been awesome if the zombies did it.
The zombies were awesome, BTW,
And brilliantly done too.



Zombies! Witches! And a hockey mask!
If you're a fan of horror movies,
You'll notice a lot of homages and parodies.
Story was quite straightforward,
Though it DOES turn the tables a little.
And the zombies were not the scariest ones there...



Really, it's hard to believe it was stop-motion,
I mean, it was OBVIOUS it's stop-motion,
But the level of detail and the animation,
It was really, really good.
Makes Nightmare Before Christmas look clunky.
Great characters too.
Give that fat kid a BEST FRIEND EVER award!



Is stop-motion animation making a comeback?
First this, then Frankenwiener later.
What is it about stop-motion and horror?
It just seems to... fit.
NBX, Corpse Bride, even the Wallace and Gromit movie.
And now this.
Not that I'm complaining.
Stop-motion animation rocks!
(BTW, stay back after the credits for some cool stuff!)
