There’s this awesome movie that I am watching with the sound off right now, because Gewel and Amelia are sleeping. It’s called Mad Monster Party and it is seriously and definitely a major inspiration for Nightmare Before Christmas. I can’t tell what it’s about or what’s going on, because the sound is off, but it looks freakin’ cool.
Nightmare Before Christmas combines three of my favorite things: horrendously complicated music, playful grotesquerie, and stop motion animation. I have high hopes for what this movie will be like when I can listen to it.
