Be careful what you wish for.
When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her.

Wonderfully imaginative animation; a visual masterpiece.

I love a good kid's story that doesn't hold back. Even as a kid I appreciated that aspect more. Just being a child doesn't mean that you can't handle a plot with serious danger at stake. At worst, it really does freak you out and you have nightmares. Still a good learning experience though, right? This might make kids afraid of spider people maybe. Good, that's a life skill they need.

The art style is so good in this. Every set looks wonderful, and every character both looks and speaks wonderfully too. The two old women neighbors just crack me up constantly. Oh, and stop motion animation is great to watch when done this well. I want more of it.
