Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Walt Disney Pictures Presents...
|Now digitally restored and remastered with state-of-the-art technology, The Nightmare Before Christmas is deeper, darker and more brilliant than ever - just as Tim Burton originally envisioned it. Can Christmas be saved? Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere!|
"A treat at any time of the year. Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A one-of-a-kind delight, a labor of love that is enchanting from start to finish. Frank Lovece, TV Guide
"This delectably ghoulish fairy tale...has a clever visual format that keeps it streamlined and sharp. Janet Maslin, The New York Times
Editor's NoteTim Burton's stop-motion animated feature finds Pumpkin King Jack Skellington thinking the grass is greener over in Santa Claus's holiday. He marshals all his goblins and ghouls to take over Christmas, but alas--poor Jack belongs to Halloween. An amazing visual and musical feast that should be seen at least twice to catch all the kinks and quirks in the nooks and crannies. Academy Award Nominations: Best Visual Effects.
