A young girl walks through a secret door that she has found in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life.

I liked the movie, but it creeped me out a bit. Still, very good.

I read the book before I went to see this movie and I thought that they would change too many things around and ultimately ruin it...they did change most of the things around but it worked out pretty well. I liked how they gave the characters more personality and they all looked quite unique. There were a few extra scenes but I didn't feel like they were bad for the movie. I don't think it was too scary, but for younger children it might get a little frightening. But overall I think it is a great movie adaptation to the Neil Gaiman book.

When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her.
