The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Part avant-garde art film, part morbid fairy tale, TNBC is a delightfully ghoulish, unmistakably-Tim Burton holiday musical displaying more inventiveness and imaginative storytelling in 75 minutes than some major studios do in years. 7.3/10.

Plot Synopsis: The film follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world.” When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he gets a new lease on life — he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously awry.
