Enchanting holiday romp with something for all

"'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."

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 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.

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

Bml93's Spooky October 2019 (28 movies items)

" - Rewatched Obligatory viewing in October. It's one of my favorite films. Gorgeous stop-motion animation. Beautifully detailed and well-crafted characters that are put into a wonderfully weird world, which is spun around an amusing and charming story. A story that manages to be as entertaining as it is emotionally genuine."
