Shock Video: We Talk to the Cast, Directors of ParaNorman – The Horror Influences, Hidden Gags & More


Shock Till You Drop’s managing editor Ryan Turek hit Beverly Hills to catch up with the cast and directors of ParaNorman, the stop-motion animated supernatural film opening in theaters this Friday, August 17th.

Yes, we have already talked to helmers Chris Butler and Sam Fell right here, however, our latest chat allowed us to press them for more details about avoiding the “Tim Burton look” and what makes their film more appealing to the genre crowd – from the small references to even the Italian horror influence.

Also in the hot seat, Leslie Mann (who informed us just before cameras rolled that she showed her kids the “horror movie” Breakdown, with Kurt Russell, recently), Kodi Smit-McPhee (the voice of Norman himself) and Anna Kendrick.  If you have any interest in seeing the film (and we suggest you do), this is definitely a recommended set of interviews to check out.  Head inside for the video.  Click here for our review.
