This is a film that reminds me so much of earlier spooky stop-motion classics such as The Nightmare Before Christmas! I’m not much of a Neil Gaiman expert, but I can’t really dig his dark and vivid storytelling with this picture. Thanks to the voice performance of Dakota Fanning, we are treated to the world of Coraline where she has the world she always wanted but not everything’s as it seems. The movie has the right balance of light and dark. A solid recommendation for stop-motion fans!
