Happy Halloween! Let’s Listen to Christopher Lee Read The Nightmare Before Christmas


I think Christopher Lee will simply read anything you put in front of him, which would explain the number of times I’ve suddenly heard his voice while listening to heavy metal about dragons. In this case, it’s Tim Burton‘s original poem describing the plot of The Nightmare Before Christmas, which has some differences from the movie (for example: no Sally, or Oogie Boogie). It’s still available as a kids storybook illustrated by Burton himself, where this animation is simply based on his designs. A good way to teach your kids vital vocabulary words like macabre.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
