Only one more night until Halloween. So that means we need to step our game up with our 13 Nights of Halloween! Tonight’s movie is the classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Originally I had planned on being the last movie we watched on our 13 Nights of Halloween, but I had a change of plan for Halloween night.
The Nightmare Before Christmas is a good family movie that shows what those in Halloween Town would do if they were responsible for Christmas. There are a few scary and creepy parts but for the most part the movie is just classic entertainment. The stop motion is incredible and is usually attributed to Tim Burton, but Burton only wrote the story. It was Henry Selick who directed this masterpiece. You can definitely see some of Burton’s influences but it’s all Selick here.
After Halloween is over commercials and television will switch on their holiday lights and it will be all about shopping and black Friday. So get your scary on while you still can and be sure to connect and follow St. Louis Dad on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!
