A beloved cult classic from director Henry Selig and producer Tim Burton that's the perfect alternative Christmas choice. Jack Skellington (voiced by Danny Elfman), leader of Halloween Town, grows tired of the holiday and decides he wants to take over Christmas instead, so he and his gang kidnap Santa and proceed to do Christmas their way. It's a macabre delight, filled with memorable songs and a terrific score (probably Danny Elfman's best ever). This is also a good Halloween movie, but it's meant to work as a dark, weird alternate Christmas choice too, and for that reason it's essential to this list.
