3. The Nightmare before Christmas

According to the director vulture.com (finally!), The Nightmare before Christmas is officially a Halloween movie – though, yeah, it's also perfect for Christmas. Even though Jack spends most of the movie embracing Christmas, the Halloween cheer in this film is unmistakable, plus there's just never a bad time to enjoy the antics of Lock, Shock, and Barrel, or the awesomeness that is Oogie Boogie.
