Seamus Mahoney’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is the perfect Christmas movie and the perfect Halloween movie, the perfect mix of both. The story is extremely unique, a Halloween town, who tries to become a Christmas town, sounds weird right? But it works so damn well. The music in this is nothing short of amazing, every song has got me singing along with “Whats This” being my favorite track on the soundtrack. This movie is always on my Halloween and Christmas movie watchlist and a year will not go by where I don’t watch it during both seasons. Also, this is all stop motion and that is incredible, it feels like regular animation but no, its all done with stop motion. If you’re feeling in the holiday spirit, Halloween or Christmas, go ahead and watch this and you’ll enjoy it, I promise. This is 100% a classic in my opinion and has become pretty iconic.
