JACK SKELLINGTON, KING OF HALLOWEEN TOWN, DISCOVERS CHRISTMAS TOWN.
Henry Selick’s 1993 film, produced and co-written by Tim Burton, may have been a box office dud upon its original release but even the briefest of visits into a Hot Topic store will show that the film has finally found its audience. And how! A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is more popular than ever – from theatrical rereleases, tribute albums and merchandising up the wahoo. You’ve seen the film countless times but you’ve never seen it like this before!
From the wonderful music by Danny Elfman to the great gothic design from Burton, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS is a classic by all rights and we’re all too happy that the film has found a dedicated fanbase to celebrate the film.
A darkly comic musical, A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS tales the tale of Jack Skellington, a resident of Halloween Town who dreams of something different from the usual pumpkins and things that go bump in the night. After discovering Christmas Town, the focal point for all things wintery, Skellington decides he and his Halloween cohorts are going to take over Christmas. The result is one of the darkest (in a deliciously fun way) holiday movies ever released.
