Here’s our recommendation for Day 19:
Where to start?
When ‘Nightmare’ was released in 1993, nobody expected it to become what it has – a cult classic, beloved by children and adults alike. A template for other stop-motion animated movies (The Corpse Bride, Coraline). A true Halloween staple. Tim Burton’s last film without Johnny Depp.
What makes this film so appealing? Is it the animation itself? The quirky movements of the clay sculptures? Is it the superb voice acting by Chris Sarandon and Catherine O’Hara? Is it the very sing-along-able soundtrack by Danny Elfman? Is it the story of best intentions gone wrong?
Quite honestly, it’s all of these together.
Instead of writing more, we’re going to go watch this right now. If you haven’t seen it,
you’re dead to us here’s the trailer. Watch this movie – it’s not Halloween without it.
