Young Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) has the ability to speak with the dead -- and he often prefers their company to that of the living. Norman receives word from his strange Uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman) that a centuries-old witch's curse on their town is real and about to come true -- and that only Norman can stop it. When zombies rise from their graves, Norman must summon all his courage and compassion and push his paranormal abilities to the limit to save his fellow townspeople.
As a kid growing up liking horror movies, scary comics and just everyday dark things it was had for me to make friends. Even though I was 27 years old when I fist say this movie it really spoke to the kid still inside me. I could really relate to norman and his everyday struggles to have people to understand him. The movie is very well mad and beautiful, the attention to details is incredible from everything from the houses to the people, you can really get lost in this world. This movie is not just for kids it is for the kid in all of us.
