The Nightmare Before Christmas
U.S., 1993

It is a Halloween movie? Is it a Christmas movie? It’s both and who cares! An enthralling vision from Tim Burton, brought to stop-motion life by director Henry Selick and set to the joyfully macabre melodies of Danny Elfman, The Nightmare Before Christmas has taken its place as a perennial holiday classic for any occasion.

DCP, color, 76 min. Director: Henry Selick. Screenwriter: Caroline Thompson, Tim Burton, Michael McDowell. With: Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara.

Recommend for ages 7+
