Media For Lunch: Your entertainment Fix in 15 minutes or less – The Nightmare Before Christmas

Watch Tim Burton’s animated poem that became The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993).

Ten years before my favorite holiday film, The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), opened in theaters, Tim Burton wrote a poem of the same name, more or less the same story we’re familiar with today.The original poem, here animated and read by Christopher Lee (that velvet voice of villains, he was Dracula and Saruman), is well worth a listen. ’Tis the season, after all.  BOO! – MD
