A Nightmare Before Christmas
The Film: Jack Skellington, Pumpkin-king of Halloweentown, has grown tired of the same old Halloween every year, and decides to try his hand at Christmas instead.
Why Kids Love It: Infectious songs. Visual gags. Ghosts, ghouls and skeletons. Shrunken heads. Snakes, bugs and all things creepy. Plus it’s really short (76mins). Did we mention the songs? Kids just love to sing-a-long.
Why It’s Wasted On Kids: It’s about a mid-life crisis! That’s the problem with little ones – no life experience. TNBC deals with themes of unrequited love, unfulfilled lives and unexplored dreams. Witty dialogue. Wittier lyrics. Children have never even heard of Oingo Boingo. Kids, man.
Best Bit for Adults: Jack’s constant, innocent mispronouncing of ‘Sandy Claws’.
