Finally watched Coraline last night, having read the book 8 or 9 years ago.  Amazing animation, fairly faithful interpretation of the story (although as usual I don't understand WHY certain elements are added to a screenplay, they don't seem to assist in any meaningful way...) 

Super duper hooper wooper creepy.  (The fact that I hate dolls does not help),  No way is that a kid's movie of any stripe, at least not MY kids; not if I don't want them trying to sleep in my bed for the next 2 months.

Keith David as the cat's voice was particularly inspired...but then again, Dr Facilier has always been my favourite Disney Villain.

It's definitely a creepy movie! The button eyes! And that's just the beginning, really.

There's something weird about the phrase "always" regarding Dr. Facilier to me. He's too new, in my mind. But he IS cool.

Coraline...my sister's kid loves it, and he's coming up on 7. But it freaks me out now, so I definitely couldn't have watched it when I was little. Maybe around age 12 or 13?
