StudioJake: ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ Retrospective: Christmas Or Halloween Film?

Tim Burton’s ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ is one of the most beloved holiday movies of all time. It has interesting characters, excellent stop-motion techniques, a dynamite soundtrack, and a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. An ongoing debate among fans is whether it is a Christmas or Halloween film. I attempt to settle the debate by examining both sides, the points in their favor, and the movie itself.

Check out the video below:

Jack Skellington goes on one of the most fantastic adventures of a lifetime. He starts out unsure of where he is going, so he gets envious of another world, and then tries to usurp it. However, he also learns a great deal. We discover the frightening nature of Halloween, but also the joy, jolliness, and wonder of Christmas. It is one of Tim Burton’s finest stop-motion features, not to mention productions. So which is it? Is it a Halloween or Christmas film? Take a peek and find out by watching this new episode.
