The Nightmare Before Christmas
  

Year: 1993
Directed By: Henry Selick

Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, is bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween. One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween — but alas, they can’t get it quite right.

This is one of the few cross-over movies, that can be played in tradition for both Halloween and Christmas, and I love it. There’s fun for the entire family to enjoy in this stop-motion classic.

Painstakingly and meticulously crafted, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is a beautiful and wonderful film from start to finish. The most famous image of this film is the cover art, which features Skellington eerily silhouetted against a full moon while he stands atop a coiled hill that overlooks a desolate graveyard.
