Coraline, the movie

2 02 2009

coraline_movieI have to admit – I’m a HUGE Neil Gaiman fan. For those of you who are unfamiliar with his work, he has written both graphics and traditional novels, as well as picture books and short stories. Some titles are Stardust, the Sandman series, American Gods, and of course Coraline.

Coraline is one of my all-time favorites. It’s a super-creepy story about a how a bored girl spends a rainy day stuck inside her house. That’s all I’m going to say about it because I really think you should read it. There is a graphic novel version also. And on February 6, they are releasing the movie. So far, I’m pretty disappointed with the previews. Much of the creepy factor seems to have been lost. I’ll be interested to see if any new fans develop or if this was made specifically for a younger crowd…

There’s a nice write-up about the director and how long he took to put the movie together in the Onion’s AV Club. Interesting!

Great movie, good animation, true to the story, and very creepy. Definitely not for little kids.
