Tired of scaring humans every October 31 with the same old bag of tricks, Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Claus and plans to deliver shrunken heads and other ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning. But as Christmas approaches, Jack's rag-doll girlfriend, Sally, tries to foil his misguided plans.

I think this is one of the best movies I've ever seen. I love the matter of claymation and how creative all of the characters are. Everyone I know says "Oh, Tim Burton is a total weirdo, his movies stink." But, you have to think of what he was picturing when making this movie! I appreciate Mr. Burton greatly and think that we'll never be able to find another mind quite like his.
This was one of the many movies that I grew up watching (I was even born the same year this movie came out). Even today I still watch this. It is fascinating that all of this was done in claymation. Every time Tim Burton creates a claymation movie, I've just got to see it. I would definitely recommend this movie. This should be the first Tim Burton movie anyone should see. It's hard to come up with a movie that is still popular despite being released over 18 years ago.
