We're exceptionally giddy over the release of the trailer for ParaNorman. It's from the makers of Coraline, which elevated the children's genre with stunning art and solid, real scares. ParaNorman is all about a special boy with the ability to talk to the dead. Check out the first ever trailer, and get into the slightly slanted world that directors Sam Fell and Chris Butler created.

Here's the official synopsis:

Norman, a boy who is able to speak with the dead, will have to take on zombies, ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse.

ParaNorman will hit theaters on August 17th, 2012.
