Stop motion animator Henry Selik made his feature film debut
with this macabre yuletide fairy tale based on a poem by Tim Burton; the darkly
comic result resembles a George Pal Puppetoon directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
Chris Sarandon lends his voice to the film’s spindly hero, Jack Skellington,
who brings the Christmas spirit to the gruesome inhabitants of Halloween Town.
Catherine O’Hara co-stars as Sally, his bug-eyed rag doll love interest and
Burton regular Danny Elfman weighs in with a melancholy mock-operatic score
containing overtones of Stephen Sondheim and Bernard Herrmann.
