5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best!, 17 Nov. 2007
This review is from: The Nightmare Before Christmas (Special Edition) [1994] [DVD] (DVD)
I hate kids films, with a vengeance. Sitting through a Disney film makes me feel ill.
When I first saw this 13 years ago now with my youngest sister I was elated, finally, a good film that had the dark undertones and scares I craved as a teen.
The musical score, unrivaled in any other childrens film I reckon, written by Danny Elfman who is more notably linked to The Simpsons.
The story, well, self explanatory, each 'holiday' has its own world that runs it. The Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, has been sucessfully running Halloween for years and years. The poor chap is in need of a change, he goes for a walk and ends up somewhere he has never been before, 'Christmas Town'.
Everything appeals to him, his bony heart beats with christmas cheer and he decides that he'd like a crack at 'making christmas'. He has Santa kidnapped and gets his ghoulish minions to start making toys. The chaps in Halloween town do their best, but perhaps inevitably, it ends up rather evil and really, really funny.
The way the film was shot using claymation and photography meant the film took 3 1/2 years to make. No skimp on quality there. The motions are seemless, the songs will stay in your head, and hopefully the cheer will stay in your heart.
Get the family round, young and old and put this film on.
Its sure to delight everyone!
