Eleven-year-old Norman can see and speak with the dead, including his beloved grandmother. Most days, he prefers their company to that of his flustered father, spacey mother, and deeply superficial older sister. Norman is unexpectedly contacted by his odd uncle Prenderghast, who floors him with the revelation that a centuries-old witch’s curse is about to come true, and that only Norman can stop it from harming the townspeople. Once a septet of zombies suddenly rises from their graves, Norman bravely summons up all that makes a hero—courage and compassion—as he finds his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits. Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Film.
