Some say THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a Halloween film, others argue it’s a Christmas one, but here at Throwback Cinema, it is the quintessential November movie: perfect at being neither, and both, at the same time.
The Pumpkin King of Halloween Town is having an existential crisis when he accidentally discovers Christmas Town, a realm of snow, elves, and Santa Claus. Inspired, Jack Skellington is determined to try his hand at Christmas, too, despite the confusion of his Halloween Town citizens and the concern of his friend, Sally. Meanwhile, the sinister Oogie Boogie and his henchmen have their own plans for Halloween Town while the Pumpkin King is distracted. Can Jack save Christmas? Halloween Town? Himself?
An instant classic when first released, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a beautiful stop-motion musical epic: join us for a glorious afternoon and the hero’s journey of the Pumpkin King! -CRYSTAL MADORE
