This Friday, "ParaNorman," the new stop-motion marvel from Laika Studios -- the same animation house that brought us the similarly enchanting "Coraline" -- haunts theaters nationwide (and, yes, the 3D is well worth the extra charge). The tale of a young boy who is gifted with the ability to see ghosts, "ParaNorman" a surprisingly heartfelt and wondrously animated delight, and anyone who loves zombies, animation, or really good movies is advised to check it out. We got a chance to chat with the film's directors, Sam Fell and Chris Butler, about the inspirations behind the film, working with composer Jon Brion, and why stop motion is inherently creepy.
