Movie Mention: ParaNorman

28 Dec

I LOVE anything and everything paranormal, so when a close friend of mine suggested this animated flick, I was ridiculously excited.

ParaNorman is set in a superstitious town, haunted by the ghost of a prosecuted witch. Norman, a young boy with the gift of seeing the dead, realizes he must take charge and solve the witch’s curse before it destroys the town he lives in (even if they do ostracize Norman for being different.)

I REALLY recommend this film, since I enjoyed the playful  aspects towards a normally haunting topic. But what is “normal” about ParaNorman?220px-ParaNorman_poster

Read more about it here.

From a writer’s perspective, this movie is a prime example on how we can take old concepts and renew them into something not done before.

Also, I’m glad everyone enjoyed my writing tips on dialogue, and I hoped you all can incorporate them successfully. It’s always a joy to help others with their passion, and I’ll be sure to share other ones to you in future posts.

In other news, I’m currently working with Amazon to feature November Snow chapters. Then I will release an E-Book for kindle and other electronic readers.

Until then, enjoy this movie, and keep writing/reading,

    I liked that movie, too. Or, well, anything Laika studios.

    I have yet to see this one and if/when I do, I’d like to post my thoughts on it.

    It looked like a really weird movie, but I’ll give it a look soon since you rated it so high.

      I hadn’t heard of it until my friend showed it to me.
      I wasn’t disappointed in the least.
      Very unique and family-friendly.
