Watch: Coraline

As the above posters suggest, "An Adventure Too Weird For Words" & "Be Careful What You Wish For", Coraline is something that everyone just have to experience at least once in their lifetime. It's like Alice in Wonderland but in a strange, creepy, scary, frightening, horrifying, terrifying, eerie, darker and (add your own adjectives here) surreal world. The soundtrack is amazing too, by Bruno Coulais who did soundtrack for Les Choristes as well. Like The Nightmare Before Christmas also from the same producer, it's a stop-motion animation adapted from a book with the same title by Neil Gaiman. 

Coraline has just moved into Pink Palace Apartments with her busy bee parent. Their neighbours are the amazing retired circus performer Mr Bobinsky, the pair of retired theatre actresses April Spink & Miriam Forcible and the talkative Wyborne who lived with his grandmother, who owns the Pink Palace Apartment. Coraline found a small door hidden behind the wallpaper of her apartment that leads her to another world with better version of her parents and neighbours, but buttons for their eyes. With the help of a talking cat, she found out that her "other" mother is actually an evil beldam (mechanical spider?) who wants to sew buttons to her eyes and keep her in the world forever. She found out about the other three ghost children who are the previous victims of the beldam. When her parents went missing, she challenged the beldam into a game and along the way help the three ghost children to set their souls free by finding their eyes.

(Added on June 1st after second time watching Coraline) I wonder what actually is the black cat?
