A movie I have been waiting to see has came out on Redbox today. I may stop on my way home to rent it.
Chris Butler (writer/director) has created a tale of an 11 year old hero that sees dead people. Norman Babcok (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is able to enjoy time with his grandmother (Elaine Stritch) whom has passed away due to his ability. His ability to see dead people has made him the target of a bully named Alvin. The story also includes his sister Courtney(Anna Kendrick), his father Perry(Jeff Garlin), the bully Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), Neil (Tucker Albrizzi) - Norman's only friend, and Neil's older brother Mitch (Casey Affleck).
Norman's deceased uncle Prenderghast (John Goodman), warns Norman that he must save Blithe Hollow from a witch's curse that has plagued the town for centuries. The curse results in dead rising from their graves. Now it is up to Norman, Courtney, Alvin, Neil, and Mitch to save Blithe Hollow.
