Tim Burton takes on the animation world with his use of claymation techniques in this dark and amazing musical film. At the time when this was released claymation has been all but abandoned in mainstream circles. Too many people would related to the old "California rasins" commercials and people felt that it seemed dated, but when Burton took his ideas and put them to work, he came out with a surprising masterpeice that people were drawn to unexpectedly.
In collaboration with Disney, The Nighmare before Christmas became a cult hit that people still talk about today as though it were only recently released. A wonderful approach at an old animation style that should not be forgotten. The Nightmare Before Christmas will be a well known movie for years to come.
