NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Directed by: Henry Selick
Produced by: Tim Burton & Denise Di Nobi
Written by: Tim Burton, Caroline Thompson (screenplay), & Michael McDoweel (adaptation)
In October of 1993, along came a movie that was seriously downplayed when it was first released then went on to become a highly overrated film that people - mainly the "emo" teens who think Jack is cool because he's... a skeleton? - seem to obsess over. It was one of Tim Burton's greatest works and definitely one he holds at a higher rank than most of his other films.
Now let me state that this ISN'T a horror film, but it IS a Halloween movie, so I feel it must be mentioned/reviewed. Soooo.. here it is!
The film opens with a creepy, but charismatic musical number which explains exactly what the town is... HALLOWEEN! Ghosts, vampires, witches, mummies, werewolves, and creatures of all kin
