The Cast and Production Crew of the upcoming film “Paranorman” hit the 2012 Comic Con in San Diego to talk about 3D release.
The film is set in the small New England town of Blithe Hollow, which comes under siege by the undead. Only a misunderstood local boy, Norman Babcock, who has the ability to speak with the dead, is able to prevent the destruction of his town from a centuries-old witch’s curse. He’ll also have to take on ghosts, witches, zombies and worst of all, the moronic grown-ups. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
