Coraline is a horror fantasy film based on the novella Coraline by Neil Gaiman. The film is the first stop motion animation to be created in 3D and is directed by Henry Selick.
Coraline tells the story of a young girl who encounters a parallel reality of her life when she unlocks and enters a mysterious door in her home. The new world through the door appears to be thrilling and fantastical, however events soon take a dark turn and Corlaine finds herself fighting to return to her real life.
Reportedly a combination of Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, Where the Wild Things Are and Pans Labyrinth, Corlaine is set to provide ‘terror and joy in roughly equal doses’.
This trailer takes a look behind the scenes of Coraline and the characters in the film. Featuring interviews with author Neil Gaiman and director Henry Selick, here you can meet the inhabitants of Coraline world.
