ParaNorman: Scariness balanced 'with healthy doses of humour'

If your children need their fix of ghosts and ghouls, then this new animated film might help.

ParaNorman tells the story of a young boy who can see and speak to dead people.

In the film Norman takes on ghosts, zombies and grown-ups to save his town from a centuries-old curse.

It is the biggest stop-motion animation production ever, but is it just a bit too scary for the kids?

British directors Sam Fell and Chris Butler spoke to BBC Breakfast.
