Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas gets a digital makeover for a new DVD and BluRay Collector's Edition (Disney)

Tim Burton, the darkly demented and wickedly inspired creator of Pee Wee's Big Adventure , Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice , began his career in the unlikely setting of Walt Disney's bright and sunny G rated studios. And their improbable alliance continued when Disney's Touchstone Pictures produced the animated adaptation of Tim Burton's children's book The Nightmare Before Christmas in 1993. Once again, Burton displayed a delightfully sick and twisted perspective that's not often seen in adult films let alone children's pictures. This past Tuesday, Walt Disney Home Entertainment re-issued The Nightmare Before Christmas in a digitally restored version for DVD and BluRay.

i cant wait till i can go out and buy my own, TNBC is like, the best movie ever made and i'm sure it will only be better on DVD...there's no way that this can not be a hit. This life/death love story or tragedy and triumph is the best film i've ever watched and now that it's on DVD it will be easier for other people to get a hold of...maybe we'll gain some new fans...haha./ YAY! join the crown babes, everybody loves this MOVIE!
