"N" is for A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS - A to Z April Challenge [2015]

So what can we say about Disney? Holds a special place in some of our hearts, for the villains or heroes and or the beautiful look. I hope to share a little bit of everything in the days coming, maybe things you forgot about, maybe not and being part of the Co-hosting for A to Z Challenge we all remember Tina... a dear friend and sweet lady.

Please stop back throughout the challenge, can I encourage you to start following me on Google + and be a member. I promise to give you posts here on why we are all a little "Hollywood Nuts"! -Jeremy [Retro]

The Nightmare Before Christmas, often promoted as Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, is a 1993 American stop motion musical fantasy-thriller film directed by Henry Selick and produced/co-written by Tim Burton. It tells the story of Jack Skellington, a being from "Halloween Town" who opens a portal to "Christmas Town" and decides to celebrate the holiday, with some dastardly and comical consequences. Danny Elfman wrote the film score and provided the singing voice of Jack, as well as other minor characters. The remaining principal voice cast includes Chris Sarandon, Catherine O'Hara, William Hickey, Ken Page, Paul Reubens and Glenn Shadix.

The Nightmare Before Christmas originated in a poem written by Tim Burton in 1982, while he was working as an animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios. With the success of Vincent in the same year, the Walt Disney Studios started to consider developing The Nightmare Before Christmas as either a short film or 30-minute television special. Over the years, Burton's thoughts regularly returned to the project, and in 1990, he made a development deal with Disney. Production started in July 1991 in San Francisco. Disney decided to release the film under their Touchstone Pictures banner because they thought the movie would be "too dark, and scary for kids.

  1. I haven't heard of that Disney film Jeremy, Though days leading up to Christmas can be a nightmare in a different sort of way.

    Enjoy your day.

  2. I keep seeing bits of this film, but something always interrupts and I never get to see it all. One day I will manage to sit through it from beginning to end :)

  3. Came from a poem? That I didn't know. This film has become more popular over the years, especially with teens.

  4. Stop motion animation has come a long way since the days of Ray Harryhausen.
    This is one of my all time favourites, and since it's release, my sister and I have always watched it on the night before Christmas.
    Can't believe it's been over 20 years!

  6. One of my all-time favorite movies, and the first movie I sat down with my toddler to watch from beginning to end - he was absolutely captivated by it. I guess good taste is in the genes. :)

  10. This was a pretty innovative film with a unique concept. I haven't seen it in its entirety from beginning to end for many years, but I did seem many snippets last year as my granddaughter was watching it a number of times.

    I had a friend from Chicago who used to be really into this film and had all kinds of collectibles from the film. I haven't asked him about it in recent years, but I'd say he's still into it. He's in the toy collectible business.

  16. I honestly think Nightmare was Tim's best work ever (but then again, it might be because of either Danny Elfman or the lack of Johnny Depp).

  17. I never knew that Danny Elfman provided the singing voice for Jack!

  18. I've never watched this and probably won't. There are so many great Christmas shows that I can't add more to the list I watch every year.

  21. Haven't seen this one, but something about it reminds me of the animated movie Caroline (or was that the name?)

  22. It's macabre fun and perfect for the Halloween season.

  23. I never did get to see this movie although I wanted to. It was so well regarded when it first came out.

  24. I saw the movie and rather enjoyed it, although I don't think I quite got everything out of it that I should have.
