From Laika, the stop-motion animation studio behind Coraline, comes this top-notch tale of an 11-year-old who can see spooky things. (Like The Sixth Sense but less morbid.) When Norman’s hometown is threatened by a ghoulish invasion, he and his friends—including gay jock Mitch—must come to the rescue. DVD extras include numerous featurettes, preliminary animation sequences, a behind-the-scenes mini-doc, and commentary from writer-directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell.
