Get the the nightmare before christmas mug.
A kickass stop-animation movie, concieved by Tim Burton. He wrote a poem that the movie was based on, but wasnt too closely involved with it otherwise.

Danny Elfman did the music and sang for Jack Skellington. WONDERFUL songs in this movie.

Pitched as a kid's movie, but all can appreciate it.
It is currently the 10th anniversary, so go out and buy it on DVD!
I love Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Mother says "It's a sick movie."

Nightmare (1993) is an EPIC stop-animation flick co-directed and written by Tim Burton, and based on a poem of his creation. Like any Burton movie, the visuals are absolutely STUNNING in their dark and dreamy ways, and Danny Elfman, who composed the music and gave our much loved Jack Skellington a voice to sing, just tied together this insane piece of perfection.

TNBC is not just a kid’s movie. It’s a masterpiece that doesn’t know age, because anyone will love its charming story, lovable characters, macabre humor, and kick-ass songs, which have been covered by bands including Marilyn Manson, Korn, Evanescence, Flyleaf, Rise Against, Fall Out Boy, All American Rejects, and Panic! at the Disco and more. Check em out on Youtube!

If escaping off to the worlds of Halloween Town and Xmas Town doesn’t rock your own, you’re not human!

... Pretty damn shitty that people who make subcultures a bandwagon thing cheaped The Nightmare by making it their little icon. How 'individual' to parade Jack merchandise, eh?
I fucking love that movie. Seriously, I've made it a tradition to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas every year around Halloween time!

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Beat him with a stick
Lock him up for 90 years
See what makes him tick

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Chop him into bits
Mr. Oogie Boogie is sure to get his kicks

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
See what we will see
Lock him in a cage and then
Throw away the key!

a decent movie which has been completely and utterly defiled by the numerous subcultures that have made it a cult classic and an object of obsession. the juvenile themes of the movie might be reflected by the below-average maturity level of a viewer consumed by said subcultures. merchandise portraying characters and other similar memorabilia are available at your local hot topic.
Stereotypical Goth Kid (the kind that gives goths a bad name): OMG NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER BECAUSE ITS FOR LITTLE KIDS AND MY PERVERSE APPRECIATION FOR THIS MOVIE IS A WAY TO PROTEST OUR SOCIETY OF CONFORMISTS!

Everyone else: You are so fucking weird.

Stereotypical Goth Kid: Mission accomplished!

Coming home from a Christmas Eve party early and find your parents having sex on the couch. You father is dressed up like Santa and your mother is dressed up like Mrs. Clause.
Chris: I walked in on my parents having sex on Christmas Eve.

Peggy: That's a real Nightmare before Christmas!
