when we all expected ParaNorman to just give us scares, i was actually proud to say that the movie has its lessons to ponder on. ParaNorman will make the audience some realizations on how we should listen to the children.
aside from its inline jokes like what we have on kids comics to teeny-boppers, the movie has its own sense of humor like putting in very common characters like Jason from Friday the 13th and from the usual American-style horror. story maybe simple but it was fun watching it.
it was a combination of zombies, ghosts, bullies, weirdness and even movie classics that even the older audiences will love. and beautifully done in stop-motion, it's better and cleaner than Gumby.
