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.
I watch this movie at least once a year. I am always blown away by its heart for the holidays and the journey that Jack Skellington goes on to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Of course, the soundtrack from the great Danny Elfman is amazing.
