Christopher Lee reads "The Nightmare Before Christmas," the poem that inspired the movie

(Video link) In case you're still wistful for some spooky Halloween-type stuff, but are secretly excited for the winter holidays, here is the great Christopher Lee, narrating the poem "The Nightmare Before Christmas" by Tim Burton. Burton wrote his poem in 1982 while working as an animator for Disney (the same year he made his short, Vincent), then later turned into one of the best stop-motion movies ever. 'Tis the season, whichever season you prefer! (via Neatorama)

    There is also a version read by Patrick Stewart, that’s the one ithat came with my book version of the poem so I’m admittedly biased towards it but no one says “He had a baby doll POSSESSED BY A DEMON!!” better.

    I liked that a lot more than the full movie.
