THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Thirty years after its release, stop-motion animated musical fantasy THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is deeper, darker and more brilliant than ever — directed by Henry Selick, it was produced and conceived by Tim Burton. Can Christmas be saved? Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington (voiced by Chris Sarandon and sung by Danny Elfman, who also composed the score and songs), the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere! The talented voice cast includes previous Burton collaborators Catherine O'Hara (as Skellington's love interest, Sally), Paul Reubens and Glenn Shadix. (Note adapted from Walt Disney Animation Studios.) DIR Henry Selick; SCR Caroline Thompson, from the poem by Tim Burton; PROD Tim Burton, Denise Di Novi. U.S., 1993, color, 76 min. RATED PG
