Coraline the book and movie
Stop-motion was able to create just the right balance of creepiness so that the movie lived up to its expectations from the novel without being too scary for the intended audience. On the contrary, it diminishes it and doesn't provide enough lasting details of the evil lady's backstory, history or motivation.
She even finds that the feral black cat that wanders around the house in the real world can talk. The Other Mother's severed hand attempts to seize the key, but steps on the blanket and falls into the well. It's another example of her being "brave, tricky and wise," and she even does it days after her big escape, proving her strength even further.

In the garden, Coraline is prompted by the cat to challenge the Other Mother, as "her kind of thing loves games and challenges.

Neil Gaiman is one of the only authors whose books really live independently on screen and in paper. Also, the movie introduces a character named Wybie who is also not present in the book; Wybie acts as a companion for Coraline in the movie, but does not alter the plot very much. He cares about Coraline very much and is kind, brave, and helpful.
