movie poster for The Nightmare Before Christmas
Also known as
Nightmare Before XMAS
This stop-motion animation film features characters created by Tim Burton, and while he is a producer of the film, does not direct. Danny Elfman contributes a lavish musical score and the singing voice of Jack Skellington (speaking voice by Chris Sarandon). Jack lives in Halloweentown and is in charge of turning out a top-notch scary Halloween each year, but he's bored of being the Pumpkin King and wanders into a mysterious forest with 6 holiday-themed doors. He opens the door shaped like a Christmas tree and discovers "the warmth that's coming from inside" in the fanciful Christmastown.
