He wrote about her surroundings and the new things she discovers behind the door often describing every step she takes.Coraline Jones does not narrate the story but oddly enough, her thoughts and feelings are the only one’s shared throughout the story.In the book the conflict is presented when Coraline ventures through the door and soon after she is not able to escape the dimension she has entered.She gets trapped in the dimension and is faced with the seemingly good other parents real…

    Coraline

    CREEPY is one way to describe “Coraline”. When I think of PG rated movies I imagine a pleasant family movie with singing and laughter. This is not one of those films. It's more like the children’s version of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, of course without the actual killings, but still the presence of ghost spirits of children who didn’t realize the dangers in time. And as always the curious and adventurous ones wind-up dead. This movie might have a familiar feel because the…

    In order to fully understand both characters, it’s important to look at their historical originals. One way to do this would be by considering common story archetypes, as discussed heavily by Professor Eiland in his mythical archetype list. The Other Mother fits very many of these archetype, so much so that it would be difficult to rank the accuracy of one over the other. In one way, she acts as the “temptress”, goading Coraline into staying in the other world with outfits, toys, and food,…

    In this scene the lighting in the house is dim to show the audience the time and how everybody but Coraline, and the mouse she is chasing, are asleep and possibly how mundane (hence the washed out colours throughout the setting) this new house is to her. The lighting in the entrance to the ‘other world’ is brighter and there are far more vivid colours. It’s not as dull or monotonous as the lighting in the real world, again emphasising how uninteresting the ‘real world’ is to her. When Coraline…
