very well animated movie, utilising the same techniques employed in The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This may be a little scary for young children though- the
story concerns a young boy who can communicate with ghosts and becomes an outcast at school and ignored by his parents. However, he may well be the towns only hope when they come under attack
It's unfortunate that this movie falls in-between two stools
of being too kiddy for adults and too adult for kiddies.
