“A ghoulish tale with wicked humor & stunning animation.”

Master of Benign Darkness Tim Burton produced this wildly entertaining stop-motion animated musical/fantasy/horror/comedy combining his patented funny/scary Goth sensibilities with toe-tapping tunes, in the process creating a true family classic … for families with a twisted sense of humor, that is. Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown (voiced by Danny Elfman, who also wrote the film’s songs), longs to spread the joy of Christmas after stumbling upon a bizarre and fascinating alternate universe called Christmastown. Unfortunately, his merry mission puts the beloved Santa Claus in jeopardy and creates a real nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere! Directed by Henry Selick (who later made the animated classics James and the Giant Peach and Coraline), The Nightmare Before Christmas is an offbeat and subversive holiday tale crafted with dazzling “old-school” animation techniques that look better with each passing year. (Dir. by Henry Selick, 1993, US, 76 min., Rated PG) 35mm & HD Digital
