One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween — but alas, they can’t get it quite right.
Plot: Tired of scaring humans every October 31 with the same old bag of tricks, Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Claus and plans to deliver shrunken heads and other ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning. But as Christmas approaches, Jack’s rag-doll girlfriend, Sally, tries to foil his misguided plans.

A true must see for all Halloween fans
I am not a big Tim Burton fan, but this movie is in my top 3 of all time. Perhaps the fact that Halloween is my favorite holiday influenced my opinion, but I doubt it. The more I hear and read about this movie, the more I love it.
Based on a parody of the famous “Night before Christmas” poem by Moore that Burton wrote and illustrated while employed at Disney, this idea was stagnant for many years prior to filming. In many ways this was a good thing, technology was able to catch up to Burton’s ideas.
In NBC, we see our hero Jack Skellington, aka The Pumpkin King, depressed as another Halloween passes. In the background we hear the residents of Halloween Town celebrate another wonderful holiday. But Jack is sad. The only one who notices is the Rag Doll-style woman Sally.
Other characters, including many town-monsters, are introduced. We meet the wonderful mayor with two faces, the evil scientist and his assistant, three local children and our evil boogie-man.
After an accident, Jack develops a plan to kidnap “Sandy Claws” and give presents out for Christmas in place of Christmas Town. You will have to view this movie to discover the rest.
The claymation is not what I expected, it was of a high quality and the movements are not jerky like the old Christmas Specials. Danny Elfman’s music has little resemblance to his work with Ongo Bongo and “What’s this?” (which Jack sings when he discovers the colorful world of Christmas Town) is closer to a tune mixed from Cabaret and The Music Man. The voices match the mouth movements nearly perfectly. This was a project from the heart and all the little touches to make it ‘just’ right show this fact.
The biggest fun a movie can give you !!!
I hate myself…This movie has been out since TEN years and I never bothered to watch it earlier. “Totally not my style” I thought. Well, I’ve seldom been more wrong…This movie is everybody’s style !!! I think I’ll start watching it every year now on the 24th of december…( What can I say, I’m a traditional person 😀 )
No seriously, I loved this movie. It gave me a warm feeling, plenty of laughs and a good old portion of sentiment. Heck, I even almost caught myself on singing along. I can assure you this means something !
Actually, it’s one of the few times the singing in a movie isn’t annoying. Tim Burton’s style is well presented in this story. Only he can tell a fairy-tale in such a macabre and morbid way. The atmosphere comes very close to that other masterpiece of his, Edward Scissorhands. The coorporation with Danny Elfman only makes the whole finished project more terrific.
SPOILERS !!!!!!!!! The story is about Jack Skellington. The pumpkin-king of Halloween town. In this cute little world, a large amount of horrible creatures prepare the celebration of Halloween. After the annual holiday, Jack is a bit disappointed and takes a long walk. He ends up in Christmas town. This village is similar to Halloween town only they’re responsible for the preparation of Christmas. Jack is so enthusiast about this that he wants to introduce this idea in Halloween town. Jack is set to replace “Santa Claws” and he will ride out to give presents to the children on Christmas evening! END SPOILERS !!!!!!! The characters in this wonderful story are very memorable. The wicked Dr. Finklestein on top. He looks like an evil version of Duckman and he opens his metal skull to scratch his brains. Very funny ! The female he created, Sally, is adorable and she’s the greatest tribute to “The Bride of Frankenstein” I’ve ever seen. Many other great references to classic horror films and I always appreciate things like that. The Boogieman, the Mayor, the witch…all these characters deserve their share of credit but I think I’ll just stop here and finish by saying that this movie is highly recommended.
Favorite “rewind”-scene: Jack tries to explain the concept of Christmas to rest of his town through a song. They don’t see the whole point of it and wonder why this whole thing doesn’t involve death or horror. Hilarious !!
