The Nightmare Before Christmas
from Film Forum, 10/26/06

To note the re-release of Tim Burton's classic Halloween musical, Steven D. Greydanus (Decent Films) has posted a review, calling it "a wonder to behold." He pushes aside the complaints against the Halloween holiday as an anti-Christian tradition, and he concludes with this observation: "There's even a touch of Christian imagery. At the moment Jack realizes he's made a ghastly mistake (as opposed to a ghastly success), he finds himself falling out of the sky; and he lands, appropriately enough, in a graveyard. Yet he is caught by the outstretched arms of a stone angel; betokening of the possibility of redemption."
