"This is Halloween, everybody make a scene!"


  • Director: Henry Selick
  • Genre: Animation, Kids & Family, Science Fiction & Fantasy,
  • Studio: Tim Burton Productions
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 70 Mins

Only the deliciously demented imagination of Batman/Ed Wood director Tim Burton could have come up with such a dark vision of the holiday season. Producing here, Burton called on the services of innovative animation director Henry Selick and composer Danny Elfman (a regular Burton collaborator, who wrote the ten surreal songs and lends his singing voice to the lead character) for this wonderfully weird fable. Packed with scary spooks, gags and dazzling d├ęcor, it enchants with every busy frame as spindly Jack Skellington, the mastermind behind Halloween, hijacks Christmas out of boredom, becoming a frightening Santa delivering nasty surprises instead of presents to terrified children. The film's affectionate trashing of Christmas traditions is conceptually cunning and clever enough to please every generation, making it an unmissable treat that's destined to become as great a yuletide favourite as The Wizard of Oz.
