Enhance your purchase
|Runtime||1 hour and 23 minutes|
Animated musical fantasy set in a parallel world where different lands represent different holiday periods. Our hero is Jack Skellington (voice of Chris Sarandon), a man from Halloween who becomes converted to Christmas and sets out to spread joy in the world. However, when Jack's new mission leads him to kidnap Santa (voice of Edward Ivory), it becomes clear that he is not really in tune with the Yuletide spirit. Produced and visualised by Tim Burton, this was the first full-length feature to use stop-motion animation throughout.

The. Artwork. is. first. class .
It. is. one. of. the. best. movies. of. the. 1990s .
Burton's eclectic mix of styles is recognisable immediately with influences of: german expressionism, hammer horror, universal horror, Dr. Seuss artwork and the story of the outsider trying to fit in and eventually accepting or being accepted for who he is as a person. Danny Elfman's score and musical numbers are of course genius and perfectly suited for the film, which stands alone as a great score in it's own right; the film would not be the same without it (comes in 7.1 surround sound on this blu-ray).
Overall I would highly recommend buying this film in Blu-ray, there are a good deal of interesting special features available such as: documentaries, deleted scenes and original early short films by Tim Burton such as 'Vincent' and 'Frankenweenie'. The transfer looks and sounds stunning and as expected the film has never looked or sounded so bright, crisp, detailed and colourful - it looks 3D even in 2D!
