Coraline Alphabet Promo Movie Posters

Coraline is an upcoming horror/fantasy stop-motion animation movie based on the children’s novel of the same name by British author Neil Gaiman. In the spirit of full disclosure, I purchased the novel Coraline the week it came out in 2002 and it has sat on my bookshelf ever since. I keep meaning to read it (I really do), and it’s not even that long so I don’t know what my problem. It’s supposed to excellent and has won numerous literary awards since it was released, and yet still it sits there.

Why you might ask then did I purchase Coraline almost seven years ago? Because of Neil Gaiman, end of story. The guy is point blank one of the best writers in the world. His Sandman series published by the DC Comics imprint Vertigo is considered a masterpiece and many literary critics who know way more about the subject than I do consider his comic book series worthy of comparison to some of the best written stories of the modern era. Because of that I’ve started to read Gaiman’s other written works, most of which are not in comic book form.

From the director of The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach, Coraline is the story of a young girl who walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life – a better version. But when this wondrously off-kilter, fantastical adventure turns dangerous and her “Other” parents try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home. As you can tell from the story’s description, many have compared the movie to Alice In Wonderland and for good reason.
