"'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems in a place perhaps you've seen in your dreams. For the story you're about to be told began with the holiday worlds of auld. Now you've probably wondered where holidays come from. If you haven't I'd say it's time you begun."

A 75-minute charmer of a motion picture that transcends age, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas should ... read more

The Nightmare Before Christmas represents what one might argue to be the most famous and well known stopmotion film of all time. It's one of the few films that generally receive annual viewings, and it's often raved as Tim Burton's best film (despite actually being directed by Henry Selick). Even if this is a case of style over substance, I couldn't help but be enchanted by this visually stunning ... read more

Nightmare B4 XMAS is the best

Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my top movies ever. Just the the whole plotline is so filpin' sweet! Think about it, mixing the two most opposite holidays ever to create a twisted version of one holiday. Also the wonderful vision of Tim Burton and Henry Selick really pulled all of Tim's ideas into the sweetest movie ever! Disneyland was so inspired by the movie they even created a ride for it... read more

It's scary and awesome. The songs are great.

“If you want examples of Tim Burton's work. This is one of the best. It's a dark animated movie (perhaps a bit too scary for kids though). It's scary and awesome. The songs are great.

The movie focuses on the Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon) who is tired of this job and discovers Christmas Town where he takes over Santa (Edward Ivory)'s duties and delivers presents to children.

'The Nightmare Before Christmas' is one of Tim Burton's dark animated movies (as well as 'Corpse Bride'). It's also better and more creative. It's one of the best movies of the year, if not the best!” read more

"Tim Burton doesn't just make live action movies dark, strange and goofy but he also makes dark animated movies (another example is 'Corpse Bride', 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' is smart, well animated and is full of unforgettable songs!"
