What is The Nightmare Before Christmas about?

Tim Burton’s 1993 flick is a mere 76-minutes long but is definitely a film that you won’t ever forget. We don’t doubt that you’ve already seen this classic, but we’ll give you a spolier-free recap just in case.

The story is set (for the most part) in Halloween Town and follows Jack Skellinton, the Pumpkin King. After another successfully terrifying Halloween, Jack accidentally wanders off and discovers how much more there is to life than spooks and scares.

He finds Christmas Town and becomes immediately obsessed, even meeting Santa Claus in the process. After introducing Christmas and all its cheer to his own town, we watch how even the best-laid plans can go seriously awry.

Aligned with Jack’s adventure, we also follow Sally – a humanoid ragdoll created by a mad scientist – who wishes desperately to escape her home and similarly discover everything that lies beyond Halloween Town.

A truly creepy but hilariously upbeat film with a great soundtrack to beat, this is one of our favourite Christmas films to enjoy this December.
