ParaNorman - Featured

Contest: See PARANORMAN in Ottawa, Winnipeg, or Halifax!

Hi Dork Shelfers not from the great city of Toronto ARE YOU READY TO GET SCARED OUT OF YOUR MINDS AND LAUGH YOUR BUTTS OFF?

Sorry for the shouting, but now you lucky people in Halifax, Winnipeg and Ottawa will get a chance to experience the awesomeness of ParaNorman, as Dork Shelf and Alliance Films want to send ten lucky winners and a guest of their choice to see this awesome animated horror comedy from the studio that brought you Coraline. The screenings will be on Wednesday, August 15th at 7:00pm.

The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company Laika, reteaming with Focus Features after the groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated Coraline, ParaNorman is the company’s second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D. In ParaNorman, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), 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, 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. The film also features the voices of Anna Kendrick, Casey Affleck, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Leslie Mann, and John Goodman.

ParaNorman opens in theatres across Canada on Friday, August 18th, but we want to send you guys there first!
