Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Collector's Edition is an ingenious and inspired fable that cleverly mixes Halloween and Christmas for an eerily unexpected holiday celebration. The film brilliantly combines stop-motion animation with three-dimensional sets and superb graphics to create a stunningly original movie experience. With a Grammy nominated soundtrack by Oscar nominee Danny Elfman, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Collector's Edition is a modern holiday classic.
Bored with his perennial role as Halloween Town's frightening Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington wanders off and discovers the cheerful village of Christmas Town. Determined to shake things up in Halloween Town, he enlists the help of some mischievous trick-or-treaters to kidnap Santa Claus and takes over the job of delivering gifts to the children of the world himself. When his plan goes awry, Jack attempts to restore Santa to his rightful place. But first, he must rescue St. Nick from the clutches of the evil Oogie Boogie!
