The Nightmare Before Christmas


Opens: October 27, 2000

Company: Walt Disney Animation

MPAA Rating: PG

Description: Fanciful frights and devilish delights await moviegoers this Halloween season as Touchstone Pictures' stylish stop-motion animated musical-fantasy, "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas" returns to popular big screen haunts for the first time in seven years. From the wild imaginations of producer Tim Burton and director Henry Selick comes a visit to a world where every holiday has its own special land. The film follows the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown's beloved pumpkin king, who has become bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the "real world." When Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown, all bright colors and warm spirits, he gets a new lease on life - he plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the role. But Jack soon discovers even the best-laid plans of mice and skeleton men can go seriously astray. Featuring a gaggle of ghouls and goblins, witches and monsters, evil scientists and creepy bug-men, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" is a frightfully delightful cult classic and a holiday - any holiday - favorite. The film is distributed by Buena Vista Pictures Distribution.
