25 Movies Like Coraline for Kids Who Love Creepy

best movies like Coraline

Coraline is a 2009 stop-motion, animated film based off the Neil Gaiman book of the same name. It was a pretty polarizing film that many people loved and many people hated. Parents of young children thought it was much too scary and dark to be a children’s movie, but people who love the movie argue it wasn’t necessarily meant to be a kid’s movie.

Wherever a person stands on the argument, there’s no denying that the movie has a huge cult following and is really quite popular, especially among older teens and adults.

If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re on the Pro-Coraline side of the argument. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be here looking for the best movies like Coraline to watch.

Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. Whether you enjoyed the movie because of its creepy yet fascinating animation style, its dark but intricate plot, because it was originally written by Neil Gaiman or just because, we’ve got a great list of similar movies for you to check out and (hopefully!) enjoy just as much.
