Coraline was very creepy. And I loved it. I can only imagine what a kid thinks as they read it. I found it creepy and unsettling as an adult.
When the movie first came out, I wanted to watch it very badly. It's the type of movie that I love and I couldn't pass it up. I got the chance to watch just a little of it (sadly, not all), but it was enough to make me want to read the children's book that it was based on.
Coraline was a creepy read that I will definitely come back to in the future. Maybe when I have children of my own, I will fill their Halloween nights with tales of the 'Other Mother', her eyes made of black buttons, skin the color of bone, alternate reality, and a talking black cat. Oh...and a circus of mice. I love it.
