I've been a fan of this movie since the day it came out. The story is marvelously spooky. The character designs are superb. The soundtrack is pure magic. The extra bonus scenes were well worth staying after the credits for. This was a must-see on the big screen again.

Great visual presentation of Neil Caiman’s book. Fun movie for pre-teens up to adults.

Metacritic

90

This is a marvelous family story, tapping into all sorts of childhood dreams and nightmares involving Mommy, monsters and heroic youngsters. Selick's imaginative sets and puppets are in perfect pitch with Gaiman's fantasy.

Selick puts his real faith not in the gimmickry that Coraline's audiences will think they've shown up for, but in the stronger virtues that they'd likely view as old-fashioned: character, and story, and handmade figures, handmade milkshakes, handmade blades of grass, each one moving utterly persuasively as he and his animators tweak it, frame by frame.

What a shrewd achievement for writer-director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas), to have made a movie that everyone will acclaim as beautiful, when perhaps the most beautiful thing about it is the sheer ugliness of it all.
