[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 Finklestein¬†and the fabulous Oogie Boogie.

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