Having seen A Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline and Frankenweenie I had no doubt I would love another dark, animated Tim Burton film. And I was right. The animation style in Tim Burton’s films is so iconic that it is almost impossible for me not to adore everything that comes out with it.

I have to admit when it comes to this story, nothing beats the 1971 film and Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka. However, I do still thoroughly enjoy this film. It is very different to the original and I like that about it, that it doesn’t try to be the same thing.

I figured that while doing a Halloween Watch it was only right that I don’t only watch children and family friendly films. I should watch something that is actually scary. Now, I’m not particularly a fan of horror movies. I’ve only seen a couple: Jennifer’s Body which wasn’t particularly good and Devil which people tell me wasn’t good but… Continue reading Child’s Play || Halloween Watch 2016
Tonight – October 5th – I ended up watching two films for my October watch. Nightmare Before Christmas was the film I wanted to watch, the film that fits the entire latter quarter of the year. A film that is neither Halloween nor Christmas but the very best of both. I never truly get into… Continue reading Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline || Halloween Watch 2016
