USA 1993
Dir Henry Selick
With the voices of Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara, Danny Elfman
Certificate PG

In Halloween Town, Jack Skellington finds scaring people isn’t fun any more so he sets his sights on Christmas Town; 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 stockings children find rats and shrunken heads. Surely this can’t mean the end of Christmas as we know it?
