In the town of Blithe Hollow, Norman Babcock is a boy who can speak to the dead, but no one besides his eccentric new friend, Neil, believes his ability is real. One day, Norman's estranged eccentric uncle tells him of an important annual ritual he must take up to protect the town from a curse cast by a witch it condemned centuries ago. Eventually, Norman decides to cooperate, but things don't go according to plan. Now, a magic storm of the witch threatens Blithe Hollow as the accursed dead rise. Together with unexpected new companions, Norman struggles to save his town, only to discover the horrific truth of the curse. With that insight, Norman must resolve the crisis for good as only he can.

If I was a kid when this movie came out, I would have been in heaven. This movie has everything that I loved as a kid. You have zombies, spirits and a weird kid that can see it all. This movie was made for that kid out there whom loves horror and monsters. This is a movie that your parents will still let you watch, hopefully.

The animation for this movie was great. The creators made the stop motion almost flawless. It is great to see how this art form has advanced over the years. The voice work was done by some of the best. I mean , just look at the list of talent listed above. The story was well written and created. I really did not see a problem with this movie at all.

This is a great movie for the whole family to watch. It would also be a great movie to add to your collection, whether you have children or not. Enjoy.
