Critic Reviews for The Nightmare Before Christmas
Part avant-garde art film, part amusing but morbid fairy tale, it is a delightfully ghoulish holiday musical that displays more inventiveness in its brief 75 minutes than some studios can manage in an entire year.
This full-length animated movie was shot in stop motion, with all the febrile, twittery fascination that the medium exerts; it has a magic-toy shop feeling, with unexpected objects stuttering into life.
Burton and his collaborators present a movie musical that's like nothing you've ever seen.
Visually a macabre knockout, this 75-minute fantasy boasts some of the wittiest, most vigorous stop-motion animation effects in the history of the process.
Burton, the man who gave us Batman, Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands, is incapable of a conventional idea. His take on the holiday fairy tale is delightfully off the wall.
Audience Reviews for The Nightmare Before Christmas
the most magical film ever created by the mind of tim burton. It truly captures your imagination, you feel magic, wonder, and fear while watching it and you come back to the real world satisfied at the end truly one of the best
Ghoulish & frightful scenery and presentation, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a seasonal treat that is eerily swell. From its effortless animation to its splendid musical numbers, Tim Burton's original tale is majestic and visionary. 4/5
With an impeccable production design, a deliciously ghoulish, German Expressionist feel to its story and an excellent soundtrack replete with inspired songs, this delightful movie is even more surprising thanks to the perfect way that it combines animation and stop motion.
