ParaNormanIn this stop-motion animated tale (from some--but not enough--of the people behind Coraline), a preteen outsider tries to save his hometown from an invasion of the undead. Our boy Norman can speak to the dead, which makes him something of an outcast among "normal" people. Of course, it also makes him the perfect person to solve his spooky town's "Scooby-Doo"-style curse. Dark, quirky and filled with lovingly detailed animation, the film will garner some big cult fans, but the premise is a shade too thin to make it a classic. 93 minutes PG.
Times and listings are for Friday 12/19 through Thursday 12/25
