The music is amazing. There's no getting by that. You have to love every song, if This is Halloween and What's This? Will likely stand out the most. Plenty of fun characters, with spot on voices for them. This is dark, the place and people of Halloween aren't watered down, but they're aren't monsters. They are what they are, simple as, and that is the classic premise of this story. Jack wants to be something else and you know how this will turn out, not that that will put you off in any way. You will revel as the ghouls and witches of Halloween prepare for Christmas and the presents they create are very funny, but seeing Jack proclaim himself the Pumpkin King is a real highlight. A walking skeleton he may be, master of terror, but it is what he is and it is right and great. It would scare kids at times, most likely, but these are good scares, and much more fun and a very uplifting tale. This is the sort of movie kids should watch but adults must see it; it is too much fun not to. This will make you love Christmas, and monsters too.
