About the Movie

Enter an extraordinary world filled with magic and wonder -- where every holiday has its own special land... and imaginative, one-of-a-kind characters! The Nightmare Before Christmas tells the heartfelt tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, and all things that go bump in the night. Bored with the same old tricks and treats, he yearns for something more, and soon stumbles upon the glorious magic of Christmas Town! Jack decides to bring this joyful holiday back to Halloween Town. But as his dream to fill Santa's shoes unravels, it's up to Sally, the rag doll who loves him, to stitch things back together. This critically acclaimed movie milestone captured the heart and imagination of audiences everywhere with its Academy Award-nominated stop-motion effects, engaging Grammy-nominated music, and the genius of Tim Burton (Batman, Planet of the Apes). The Nightmare Before Christmas -- a delightful treat the whole family will enjoy!

Fresh: A fun house of funereal glamour. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The dazzling techniques employed here create a strikinglook that's never been seen in such sustained form, making this a unique curio that will appeal to kids and film enthusiasts alike. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Part avant-garde art film, part amusing but morbid fairy tale, it is a delightfully ghoulish holiday musical that displays more inventiveness in its brief 75 minutes than some studios can manage in an entire year. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Dec 3, 2013
