CORALINE
2009, Focus Features, 100 min, USA, Dir: Henry Selick

Based on the award-winning book by Neil Gaiman, this Oscar-nominated stop-motion animated hit from director Henry Selick (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS) is a remarkably effective fusion of kids movie and horror film. When young Coraline (Dakota Fanning) discovers a passageway to a parallel universe in her new home, what at first seems like the ideal world for the adventurous girl turns out to contain dark secrets and sinister intentions. Costarring Teri Hatcher, and featuring a score by Bruno Coulais that greatly enhances the often-creepy atmosphere
