“The Conjuring” is like the smart, creeping horror of the “Exorcist” mixed with the modern thrills of “Paranormal Activity” and the good half of “Insidious.”

If there’s one takeaway from Laika’s new film “Paranorman,” it’s that just because something is different or unusual does not mean it should be ignored; it should be given a chance.
