More often than not, when we watch a film, we don't give too much thought to the amount of work involved in putting it together. Which, refreshingly, is something that director Henry Selick decided to fix during trailers for his latest stop-frame animation film, Coraline, which hit our cinema screens earlier this year. To highlight just how meticulous the process can be, he flashed a few facts fleetingly across the screen: thousands of hands for puppets were each made by hand, a forest of cherry blossoms made of popcorn, five miles of gold thread for a five-inch wig and 3,500 flowers that all light up.

Optimum Home EntertainmentIn this year's classiest ghost story, Belen Rueda and her husband buy the seaside orphanage where she spent her happy childhood and reopen it at as a home for the disabled. But when her own son goes into detail about his imaginary new friends, she wonders if they really are imaginary, after all. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, this Spanish chiller gets its scares from its unsettling atmosphere, wrenching emotion and stealthy plotting, rather than moments which make you jump. So when those moments do come along, you'll jump all the higher.
