I had to buy this DVD for the holiday season, because it has become one of my favorite Christmas movies. The stop-motion animation here is the best ever shot, and the creativity of the images is absolutely astounding. The story is great as well, and the Danny Elfman music is wonderful (my favorite is the 5/4 love song that Sally sings). I guess you could watch this for both Halloween and Christmas, but it seems much more Christmas-y to me. I wish we could see what's behind the other holiday doors!
