The folks who made Coraline (other than Neil Gaiman, who played the slightest role in that film's creation) have another animated kid's horror film coming out. Horror? It's probably not horror per se if it is rated PG, but that's the genre label that we've got. Here's the film's plot summary:

In the comedy thriller, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.


I never had much use for items labelled as "for children" even when I was a child. This is partially because as an overly solemn eight year old, I had better things to do like reading Lord of the Rings and plotting orc army movements on graph paper to demonstrate how Sauron could have won the war. So as an adult I tend to screen out children's entertainment. It is inarguably present in this world, but it seems to categorically have nothing to do with me. Like soy products. That said, this description had me at zombies.


And just to finish the film news trifecta of plot, trailer, poster ... here's the poster.
