From the unique, gothic imagination of Tim Burton, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a playfully skewed take on the festive ghost story, now celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Bored with the same old scare-and-scream routine, Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, longs to spread the joy of Christmas. But his merry mission puts Santa in jeopardy and creates a nightmare for good little boys and girls everywhere! Can Christmas be saved?

First conceived as a children's book during the filmmaker's tenure in Disney's animation department in the ‘80s, the macabre magic of its fairytale setting was eventually realised through the distinctive qualities of stop-motion animation – becoming the first film of its kind to be released by a major studio.
