If this movie doesn't, no movie ever will convince you not to creep around the attic. It also teaches that sometimes things are not what they seem. Coraline (Dakota Fanning) goes through the attic to meet her other parents. They are nicer than her real parents, and she is drawn to them, until it is almost too late. I really like the depiction of the cat. The animation was very similar to a Tim Burton movie, with its long limbs and skinny bodies, unless the opposite is emphasized. It was written and directed by Henry Selick.
