After watching Coraline I’ve picked out three scenes that I believe capture tones of the movie adequately.
First is Coraline going through the tunnel to the other world. similarly to Alice falling through the rabbit hole to wonderland this is a very important part in the movie.
Second was Coraline walking off the world. This was one of the moments when Coraline starts to understand the other mother’s motives and is really a visually impressive scene.
Lastly is Coraline being trapped in the mirror. This is one of the more scary scenes where she comes across the spirits of other children captured by the other mother. This sets the tone for the final parts of the movie with scary imagery around every corner.
