About the Movie

From the Director of The Nightmare Before Christmas comes a visually stunning stop-motion animated feature like you've never seen before! Coraline Jones is bored in her new home until she finds a secret door that leads her into a world that's just like her own…but better! But when this fantastical adventure turns dangerous and her "other" Mother tries to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness and bravery to get home. Critics are hailing Coraline as "A remarkable feat of imagination." (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Coraline never stops taking artistic risks. I hope there's a brave enough audience out there willing to take the plunge. – Tom Charity,, Nov 17, 2014

Fresh: All involved in this production deserve praise for turning Coraline into a triumph of storytelling and cinematic technology. Whether you're young, middle-age or older, you'll adore it. – Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News, Nov 17, 2014

Fresh: The fine details and surreal flourishes Selick lavishes upon Coraline's tentative travels into the unknown are a never-ending delight. Even during the sections of the story that are intended to disturb. – Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), Nov 17, 2014

Fresh: Understated, dark and wonderful, it's a classic for those of Coraline's age. – Sacha Molitorisz, Sydney Morning Herald, Nov 17, 2014

A movie that got it right,

I feel like this movie really shows progress in breaking up the childish image that american animated movies are stuck with today. This movie is really kind of a slap in the face to other animated movies saying 'you dont need talking gerbles doing karate to have a good movie'. Its a great movie. So well done. And so maticulous, it seems like they didnt take the easy way out in any aspect of making this movie. Which is hard to find in cimema today. I applaud Henry Selick. And by the way, TIM BURTON DID NOT MAKE THIS MOVIE. Tim Burton isnt even associated. The director of The Nightmare Before Chirstmas is Henry Selick. Tim Burton created the story for TNBC and characters, but did NOT direct it. So stop saying what a good job Tim Burton did on this movie because he didnt even do anything.

Coraline is one of the most spectacular films. With its twisted humor, and dark perception, it exceeded my expectations. From the commercials it didn't see like much, but after seeing it in 3D, it felt like a dream. I was hooked through the entire film, not wanting to leave the theatre. Director, Henry Selick, did a good job separating the book and movie, and making then equal in similarity and uniqueness. The storyline was what drew me in the most. It wasn't clique, and it was a good sense of creepy. I read the book, and watched the movie, and I am satisfied with both.

Absolutely Amazing!

Since a lot of you won't want to read long reviews, you'll just need to know the following. The animation is wonderful and the storyline is amazing. I saw this in theaters and have been counting down to the day of the release. It's definately worth the money!
