The Nightmare Before Christmas


“The hippest of all holiday classics, The Nightmare Before Christmas is postmodern three-ring circus of morbid humor, eye-popping puppet animation and show-stopping songs.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

The Nightmare Before Christmas, from producer Tim Burton and director Henry Selick, is a delectable witch’s brew of stop-motion animation, catchy tunes and seriously twisted imagination – a delight for the whole Addams Family!  Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere!  Can Christmas be saved? (Dir. by Henry Selick, 1993, USA, 76 mins., Rated PG)
