A GREAT Halloween movie for both adults and kids. If you were to lop off the top of Tim Burton's head and take a peek inside, I like to think that the contents would look something like 'The Nightmare Before Christmas'.
This animated masterpiece is the the epitome of previous Burton projects such as 'Beetlejuice', 'Edward Scissorhands' and the first two 'Batman' movies. It's the number one example of how good quality animation can be used to make any stretch of the imagination seem real. And, like so many of Burton's movies, it's macabre and morbid, but also surprisingly uplifting.
Chris Sarandon is the voice of Jack Skellington, the spindly-legged resident of the ghoulish Halloween Town. While walking in the woods one day, he discovers a doorway to Christmas Town, where he's overcome by the spirit of goodwill shown by the cheery residents with their decorated trees and snow-covered streets. In fact, so taken is he by the idea, that upon returning home he convinces his fellow townsfolk to abandon Halloween and start preparing for yuletide instead.
The only trouble is, his plans - which include having "San-dee Claws" kidnapped - aren't entirely appreciated by the rest of the world. Particularly when small children discover severed heads and giant snakes in their stockings instead of the usual array of pressies.
