Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee), a kid whose ability to see dead folks gives this zombie-lite animated feature its name, has fantastic built-for-3-D hair that sticks straight up as if in a permanent expression of fright. The hair counts as a wan joke in this bland diversion, since Norman is blithely unafraid of the assorted undead that only he can see in his ghost-infested town. The story may be thin, but the project, a feat of stop-motion animation, is made with generous care by the same impressive LAIKA studio artists who conjured up the gorgeous Coraline. B
