In 1993, Tim Burton humbly presented Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. This story features the Halloween King, Jack Skellington, discovering Christmas and deciding that he and his ghoulish friends shall kidnap the Sandy Claws and run Christmas themselves this year. Unfortunately, Halloween Town residents are fated to fail as everything they do edges towards the dark and nightmarish side of Halloween. This short little feature presented music by Danny Elfman and the voices of Catherine O’Hara, Chris Sarandon, and Uncle Lewis…I mean William Hickey. This nightmare was made for $18M and brought home a powerful $89M at the box office, along with critical praise and a cult following from those who love the dark holiday. But does it hold up? Listen in as Jon, Colin, and Brent discuss death and dismemberment alongside holiday cheer as we try to determine if this flick deserves joy and goodwill, or if it is better left for dead.
