Its the Nightmare Before Christmas


Have to share this one with you all, the 3D version of my favorite movie, 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' is releasing on October 20 and under no condition will I be missing it.
Directed by Henry Selick, and released by Touchstone pictures in 1993, the original version of the film is about the inhabitants of Halloween Town who try to take over Christmas for a year. Being a ten year old then, watching the film was simply an awesome experience. The thought of Santa Claus disappearing or being kidnapped was rather scary but I would not hesitate to say that just like Jack Skellington, The Pumpkin King and the inmates of Halloween Town, I also learnt to appreciate the true spirit of Christmas only after my exposure to this film.The twisted but irresistibly funny songs, the Gothic scenery and animation were all commendable. And after such an unforgettable experience as a child, learning of the remastered release of the 3D version in 2006 by Walt Disney Pictures made me jump with joy.
Hey did you know that a video game based on the 1993 version was released in 2005? Called 'The Nightmare Before Christmas Oogie's Revenge', the game developed by Capcom from Japan from PlayStation2 and Xbox systems is a rather dark vision of the story but capable of keeping anybody glued to the screen for hours.
As for the new film, 76 minutes of ultimate festive magic is about to cast its spell shortly and I am prepared to be mesmerized, are you?

Here's a preview, enjoy!
