Coraline is a 2009 children's dark fantasy film directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and The Giant Peach) and based on the novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Good Omens). The film centers on a clever but lonely girl named Caroline who resents her distracted parents and wanders through their creepy new apartment in search of amusement. She soon encounters an eerie parallel world populated by idealized alternative versions of her family and neighbors each with a set of buttons instead of eyes. The parallel world starts as a dream come true but as the mystery unravels Coraline soon uncovers the horrifying truth at the center of the parallel world and finds the courage to go toe to toe with evil.
The Coraline merchandise line is currently available at BoxLunch.com.
