The Nightmare Before Christmas
Tim Burton’s most popular animation is a mischievous exploration of what’s meant by Christmas spirit.
Dir Henry Selick
With the voices of Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara, Danny Elfman
In Halloween Town, Jack Skellington finds scaring people isn’t fun anymore. Instead he sets his sights on Christmas Town, which is covered in snow and full of tinsel and joy. His festive attempts get lost in translation when Father Christmas disappears and instead of toys in their sacks, children receive rats and shrunken heads. Surely this can’t mean the end of Christmas as we know it?
