CONTEST: See ParaNorman in TORONTO!


Sorry if we scared you, but now that we have your attention, it’s time to announce another wonderful contest from your ghoulish best buddies at Dork Shelf and our creepy crawly friends at Alliance Films as we want to send you and your family to see an advance screening of the animated zombie comedy PARANORMAN in Toronto on Saturday, August 4th at 10am. We have five family four packs to give away to our lucky/unlucky/dead/living/undead readers!

The new 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from animation company Laika, reteaming the company 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! To enter, simply email [email protected] with ParaNorman in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. For additional chances to enter, like the contest announcement on our Facebook page, or re-tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Wednesday, August 1st.

Stay tuned to Dork Shelf boys and ghouls, because we will have more great news, reviews, interviews, and contests coming for you in the near future, including some really cool stuff about the making of ParaNorman and even more chances to win your way into seeing an early screening of the film. Sleep tight, readers. We might be coming to your neighbourhood soon…
