According to a recent article on Nerdist, there has been some controversy as to whether Tim Burton's masterpiece, Nightmare Before Christmas was a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie. Well, I've always considered it a Halloween movie, but what is it?
Well, we have the definitive answer. The acclaimed film critic, Devin Faraci moderated a Q&A with the director of the film, Henry Selick, at The Telluride Horror Show. Towards the end of the session, a little girl in the audience raised her hand and put the director on the spot: Is The Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? According to Faraci, Selick remarked, “It’s a Halloween movie.”
Well of course it is!
