Tim Burton is an amazing director and Tim Burton movies often have a whimsical, creepy yet playful tone to them. Some of his movies happen to be in my list of favorites that I revisit from time to time. And, most of his movies tend to be similar in theme too! They have an air of weirdness that is perfect for Halloween time! Here a few of my choices of my favorite Tim Burton movies that’ll really get you in the Halloween spirit.
1. The Nightmare before Christmas
Although the title has Christmas in it, it is centered in Halloweentown, a town where goblins, ghouls, ghosts and monsters scare people year round. When Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king, discovers the idea of Christmas, he gets consumed with the idea, and cooks up a plan to make it happen. It’s a really cool movie because it has such a unique and quirky concept. The animation is amazing, and anybody who is into rock (like me) often sports some form of clothing or has an object attributed to this gem. It’s such a great part of my childhood and part of the list of Tim Burton movies I go through to get me in the Halloween spirit!
