Norman is a young boy that is able to hear and see the dead. After a curse was placed on the town by a witch a few centuries before, someone has had to keep in in check. It is now Normans turn to do so. But first, he has to deal with bullies, adults that don’t believe him and zombies.

 

I didn’t like the art. It just seemed… ugly to me… everything and everyone were lopsided and so many had such flat heads it made perfect sense why so many were such complete idiots. The story itself was pretty good though. It was interesting,  entertaining, funny and was even pretty cute and sweet closer to the end. I actually wasn’t expecting just about everything that happened by the end. There’s the family thing that’s pretty obvious.

Anyway, if you can get pass the art and the fact that Norman and his grandmother are the only characters that seemed to have a brain, it’s a good movie and I’d suggest watching it.
