You can't keep a good movie down! After thrilling audiences of all ages (and scaring the hell out of a few tots) upon its initial 2D release, Henry Selick's dark stop-motion fantasy—from the mind of Tim Burton—has been a guinea pig for advancing technologies.
The story of the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown's (Elfman) attempts to capture the Christmas spirit to the morbid delight of his townspeople was re-released after a 3D conversion in 2006 and has made subsequent annual appearances in theaters, including a 4D presentation in Los Angeles in 2010, where its already-eye-popping visuals have been improved upon with each new edition.
