The Films Opening in Dallas This Week

If you're a lifelong horror fan like me, then ParaNorman is your kind of haunt. Chocked full of 70s/80s genre nostalgia, homages to the creepy classics, and a great social commentary, the stylish stop motion flick from writing-directing duo Sam Fell and Chris Butler (and the studio that brought you Coraline) is frightastic for both kids and kids at heart.

Personally, it made the 12-year-old boy version of me go all movie nerd from the minute the opening credits rolled. Of course, sitting down with fellow gore geeks Fell and Butler led to discussing our favorite horror films, zombie impersonations, and details about ParaNorman (opening today).
