Watch this if you liked: "The Nightmare Before Christmas", "Alice In Wonderland", "James And The Giant Peach"

Based on Neil Gaiman's 2002 best-selling children's novella of the same name, "Coraline" completely sets itself away from any other kid films out there that heavily relies on predictable plots and possibly even animal jokes. Bringing you the same director who did "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and "James And The Giant Peach", Henry Selick's film adaptation of the novella may come across as disturbing for kids as it takes audiences inside a dark and creepy environment that he's commonly known for.

A young girl named Coraline is bored with her mundane life at her new home and unengaged by her workaholic parents when she discovers a secret door in the house. The passageway leads her to the Other World, a parallel reality that seems similar to her life, only much better. Her Other Mother and Father are seemingly the perfect parents. However, when the adventure turns dangerous, she must save herself and family and find the way to get back home.

The awards-winning actress Dakota Fanning lends her voice for the character Coraline. Often mistakenly called as Caroline, Coraline is an unpleasant child who frequently complains and does not like to make friends. Other stars who lend their voices include "Desperate Housewives" actress Teri Hatcher as Mel Jones and Caroline's Other Mother and Jon Hodgman as Charlie Jones and Caroline's Other Father.

The visuals in "Coraline" are strong and exceptionally well done, bringing you the same type of visuals as in "The Nightmare Before Christmas". There are some stunning set pieces, mostly placed in Other World such as the garden and the world's strangest theatre. Also released in 3-D, a majority of online critics were impressed with the film's 3-D effect.

With its animation combined with Gaiman's imaginative story, "Coraline" is a film that's both visually stunning and entertaining. Overall, "Coraline" is a wildly imaginative, wickedly creative and nicely done. But this reviewer would not recommend this for kids.
