Based on the children's novel 'Here Be Monsters' by Alan Snow, The Boxtrolls tells the story of a young orphaned boy raised by underground cave-dwelling trash collectors who tries to save his friends from an evil exterminator.

From the creators of Coraline and Paranorman, it’s the fantastic stop-motion animation that makes The Boxtrolls a special treat for all of the family, and animation house Laika have really done a fantastic job in creating a magical and visually stunning world.
