The Fandom Show: The Nightmare Before Christmas (w/ Alix Markman)


This week, Christmas will be OURS! We’re talking with screenwriter and professional nerd, Alix Markman (she/her) about her lifelong love of the greatest holiday movie of all; The Nightmare Before Christmas! We sink our sandy claws into the history of this Henry Selick classic, the intricate stop-motion animation, the magic of Danny Elfman’s musical numbers, how Jack may have done some medium to heavy cultural appropriation and why Thanksgiving Town would probably suck. Plus, the definitive answer on what holiday this movie ACTUALLY belongs to (hint: it is neither Halloween, nor Christmas).
