It's difficult not to fall for THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Utilizing stop-motion animation to its fullest effect, this perennially popular gem is a delightfully dark, wonderfully weird, and totally joyous creation. Beneath all of its outer oddness, though, is a sweet, touching story about embracing change and appreciating what is in front of you. Further elevated by Danny Elfman's intelligent and wildly clever songs, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is an endlessly inventive, hand-crafted wonder that's pure cinematic magic.
