In ParaNorman, a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee), who is able to speak with the dead.

In addition to the zombies, he'll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse.

But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.

Following Laika's groundbreaking Academy Award-nominated animated feature Coraline, ParaNorman is only the second stop-motion animated feature to be made in 3D.

ParaNorman is being directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler, from Mr. Butler's original screenplay. Fell was director of The Tale of Despereaux and Flushed Away. Butler was storyboard supervisor on Coraline and storyboard artist on Tim Burton's Corpse Bride.

We have ten ParaNorman prize packs to give away each includes a backpack, a notebook, a stationary set and a night light.

ParaNorman opens in New Zealand theatres today. More about the movie
