'Coraline'

The director of "Coraline" has suggested it is for brave children of any age. That's putting it mildly. This is nightmare fodder for children, however brave, under a certain age. I know kids are exposed to all sorts of horror films via video, but "Coraline" is disturbing not for gory images but for the story it tells. That's rare in itself: Lots of movies are good at severing limbs, but few at telling tales that can grab us down inside where it's dark and scary.

Yes, the characters work themselves into the same sorts of tizzies over falling in and out of love - or finding love in the first place - but mixed in with the fizziness is an unexpected seriousness, an attempt at injecting realism and even failure.
