What’s this? What’s this? A new Patron bonus podcast!

By 1993, audiences had become accustomed to Tim Burton’s dark, gothic style. We also had seen him depict goth, cold, snowy Christmases in both Batman Returns and Edward Scissorhands. Those two live-action films seem like a build-up to Burton’s now-classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Though he handed the directing reigns to Henry Selick, Burton’s fingerprints are all over this stop-motion fairy tale he wrote and produced. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Now Playing hosts join Jack Skellington and Sandy Claws in Christmas Town. Is the film a great present, or a lump of coal in our hosts’ stockings? Become a Now Playing patron now to find out!

Tired of scaring humans every October 31 with the same old bag of tricks, Jack Skellington, the spindly king of Halloween Town, kidnaps Santa Claus and plans to deliver shrunken heads and other ghoulish gifts to children on Christmas morning. But as Christmas approaches, Jack's rag-doll girlfriend, Sally, tries to foil his misguided plans.
