What’s funny about this film is we actually knew a bloke called Norman and he was indeed paranoid about everything and guess what we used to call him? That’s right, ‘Sad Norman‘.
Directed by Sam Fell (The Tale of Despereaux, Flushed Away) it features the vocal talents of Casey Affleck, Chris Mintz-Plasse and John Goodman and is produced by Laika and Focus Features the same collaboration who brought us Coraline. Just like that movie it’s a tad darker than most children’s flicks, dealing with a story which charts the struggle of a boy called Norman, (who can communicate with the dead), and his increasingly difficult task of saving his small town from a centuries old curse which involves zombies, ghosts, ghouls and witches.
Any film which uses Donavan’s music gets the thumbs up from us.
