Menifee, Calif. – Halloween is the perfect time to watch a scary movie like “IT,” “The Shining,” and even more of those horror films, but what if there was a film that captured more than one holiday? Well I can tell you that there is. The movie is called “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” This film was produced by Disney in 1993. It was also directed by Tim Burton, and scored by Danny Elfman. I have watched this film every Halloween since I was a kid. I have now covered it in a movie review, for MSJC students. Don’t worry if you missed watching it this Halloween, it’s also good for the Christmas season. So, if you like a good Halloween movie that isn’t scary, watch Disney’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Join me as I review my favorite holiday movie and you can see why I love it so much.
