Summer is winding down and the best way to end the season is with a good movie. The best movie release of Summer 2012 is Universal Pictures masterpiece Paranorman. This movie has appeal for all ages. It is utterly flawless. I love, love, love this movie. It is such a great experience. The story is great, the graphics are great and the casting was done great!
It has a great voice cast, to mention a few Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In,) Anna Kendrick (Twilight,) Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad.) Paranorman takes the audience to Blithe Hollow where Norman can speak to the dead and no one believes him.
The film has references to other horror classics including Halloween and Friday The 13th. The clay-animated graphics are the best Universal has produced to date. One scene in particular is just so amazing and fun. Norman’s class is performing the yearly play, and they are singing Donovan’s classic “Season of the Witch.” For an animated film, the soundtrack is actually quite excellent.
This movie is a must see. Horror buffs, animation lovers and all other walks of life will not be disappointed.
