Tim Burton melds the magic of Christmas with the terror of Halloween in this beautiful and somewhat macabre claymation-musical. The story revolves around the life of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King and most revered character in Halloween Town. Jack in his desire to find new thrills in life stumbles across Christmas-town and causes the balance between the two worlds to shift. This is a quirky and slightly scary children's movie, but behind the horrors there is a gentle message about the comfort of home and being true to yourself that cannot be ignored.
Not for pre-schoolers, but primary kids will love the crazy characters and catchy tunes, it's a magical piece of work.
FINAL SAY: Claymation at its best.
