Coraline - A Creepy Stop-Motion Animation

Who's up for a creepy stop-motion animated film?

Sneak Peek:

“Coraline” (due in theaters February 2009)

Take an inside glimpse at this amazing stop-motion production. Beware – there are a few story spoilers within. Could it be as good or better than “The Nightmare Before Christmas?"

Making of:

Neil Gaiman's fairy tale horror, "Coraline" is being adapted as a stop-motion animated film by Henry Selick, the director of "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "James and the Giant Peach". It is set to be released on February 6, 2009, and it's the first stop-motion animated film to be shot in stereoscopic 3D.

Here is a look behind the scenes of the film, with interviews from Selick and Gaiman, cast members including Ian McShane and John Hodgman, and all-new footage of Coraline! This video is first in a series of featurettes, presented exclusively by Rotten Tomatoes over the course of "Coraline Sneak Peek Week".

The Story of Coraline:

In this featurette, Henry Selick and writer Neil Gaiman describes Coraline's unusual tale. She lives a life that's way too normal and her parents ignore her, when she finds a small, bricked-off door in the den. However, at midnight, it turns into a portal to another version of her house where everything is wonderful and magical, and she has more idealized copies of her parents that lavish attention on her and are much better cooks. However, she soon realizes that it's a trap set by the Other Mother to ensnare her and take her soul.

"Coraline" is adapted from an award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman, enchanting yet chilling. Henry Selick details how he is treating his story with his own stop-motion genius.

The World of Coraline:


Tim Burton must have rubbed off on the director, Henry Selick.

He worked with Burton by directing Nightmare Before Christmas and James & the Giant Peach.

Thankfully, he returned to animation after directing Monkeybone. =^)
