The Nightmare Before Christmas

The_nightmare_before_christmas_posterThe Nightmare Before Christmas, which originated as a poem written by Tim Burton in 1982, was developed into a stop-motion animated classic  by the Walt Disney studio. Now available in 3D, it has been an annual Christmas favourite since its release in 1993

Jack Skellington, master of Hallowe’en, is bored and envious of Santa. He decides to switch places and chaos ensues as concepts and images of the two holidays are switched around.

Burton’s poem (which you can read here) differs in many key essentials from the longer film it inspired.  This animated short of the original poem, is narrated Christopher Lee.

Here are the trailer and some short clips from the feature film. Which do you prefer?
