[Festive Friday] The Nightmare Before Christmas

It’s that time of the week again – Festive Friday! In the spotlight this week is a musical masterpiece directed by Henry Selick, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

IMDb: “Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept.”

The film oozes Tim Burton, which is unsurprising as he co-wrote and co-produced it. It is very much an ‘alternative’ Christmas film, and features unique, intriguing characters like Jack, Dr FinklesteinĀ and the fabulous Oogie Boogie.

While there are other films that might make you feel more Christmassy, The Nightmare Before Christmas isĀ a stunning film that features first class stop-motion animation and will always be a festive favourite at Cinematic Delights HQ.
