Now this is a holiday treat! AICN got word from Neil Gaiman that the first footage from the Henry (Nightmare Before Christmas) Selick – directed adaptation of Coraline is finally online! We grabbed it and threw it into Video Dread for ease of viewing, but you can feel free to get the original, large Quicktime file through the AICN link.
For those unaware, Coraline is a creepy kid’s tale penned by Gaiman back in 2001. The titular little girl is moved with her family to a new house in the middle of nowhere and is bored out of her mind. One day she finds what appears to be a hidden door that leads to an alternate reality where, at first, everything seems so much better. But her “other” mother has some very twisted intentions for young Coraline. You can check out my Coraline script review from forever ago to learn more.
No word on when Coraline will make it’s way to theaters but what you can see below should whet your appetite nicely! More as we learn it!
