Norman is an average boy with an interesting little secret. He can talk to the dead. Throughout the course of the film we see Norman try to cope with his abilities and try to make friends and much to his chagrin he really isn't good at the making friends thing. Until one day when Norman meets Neil and the two quickly become best friends. Unfortunately, for Norman the town bum (who is his long estranged uncle)informs Norman that if he doesn't take up his ritual that the town will fall under the curse of a witch who was murdered three centuries prior, and as luck would have it soon after being told this Norman's uncle dies. Now it is up to Norman to keep his town safe from the witch's curse and he doesn't follow through, and before you know it zombies are on the loose and Norman must save the town.

Best part of story, including ending:
It was a different take on "The Sixth Sense" formula. The film has a lot of heart and is important in helping children and adult comprehend loss without being overly depressing.
Best scene in story:
When we see what Norman's morning commute is like and how nearly everywhere he looks there are people who have died and we truly get to see what is is like to live like Norman for a few moments.
Opinion about the main character:
He starts off initially disliking his gift and seeing it as a curse, and as the film goes on we see how he develops and understands his power and uses it for good.
