Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas

dir. Henry Selick (1993)

Cue the skeleton:

“If Christmas fills your heart with woe, a schmaltz-fest souring your December

maybe you’ll prefer macabre stop-motion Halloween adventures

(but) Disney brings the curse of singing, rhymes so trying, Walt’s will lurking

Elfman’s lyrics don’t deliver Burton’s dark disturbance.”
