A beautifully intricate film, full of minute detail in pretty much every scene, and that's made all the more impressive by the fact that it's a stop-motion picture. The story was an excellent piece of kids' fantasy that had just enough of an edge to not disengage the adult audience. It perhaps could’ve used a few deeper scares – it may be because I’m getting old, but I think kids have it easy with the scares these days – but beyond that, absolutely masterful.
