Disneyland was so inspired by the movie they even created a ride for it... read more

"OCTOBER 25: I forgot how creepy the animation on this movie is. Another classic for Halloween AND Christmas. My sister complained about it being such a confusing movie that you're not sure when to watch. I told her to watch it at Thanksgiving and be done with it. FAVORITE SCENE: Jack's soliloquy in the cemetery."
