Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas quickly became a cult classic in the early 90s. It didn’t break any box-office records, but became a favorite among critics for its darkly original aesthetic. It was also a major achievement in stop-motion film making and set a new standard.
The original film came out over twenty years ago, but somehow it still hangs on in the public psyche. It blew up on VHS and DVD and soon everyone was falling in love with the story of Jack Skellington, Sally, and the denizens of Halloweentown. It was just one little movie that earned a fair amount of money and became a phenomenon for so many fans.
