Jack Skellington is the King of Halloween. He becomes bored with the same routine every year. He decides to take a walk in the woods. There, he discovered a door leading to Christmastown and decides to spread Christmas joy to the world. When he is back in Halloweentown he shows his friends what Christmas is like, and he suggests doing Christmas this year instead. But things do not go as planned when Oogie Boogie, an evil gambling boogey man, plots to play a game with Santa Claus' life and creates a nightmare for all the good little boys and girls everywhere. Although Sally attempts to stop him, Jack embarks into the sky on a coffin-like sled pulled by skeletal reindeer.

freeaking love it!

For all the fun yet weird people out there...this movie is for you! In my opinion, Tim Burton's best film.

Great visuals and songs; bad message

Since I first saw this movie in the theater during it initial release, I have viewed this film as inherently flawed. The characters are delightful, the songs and score divine, and the visuals creepy and delicious. However, the plot resolution clearly lays out that the protagonist of the piece can and should expect for a parental figure (in this case Santa Claus) to fix all the things he screwed up. I guess it's a parable for the helicopter-parented generation.

Love it!

I never know whether to watch this at Christmas or at Halloween...so sometimes I watch it at both! It's such a fun, creepy, weird movie. Not your usual Christmas movie for sure. This is Tim Burton at his finest.

Do Not Miss

One of the greatest musicals of all time.
