Can you believe we just received our first copy of The Nightmare Before Christmas on Blu-ray? We used to just watch the film when it was on TV around Halloween, but who wants to wait for it to air, let alone have to suffer through commercials, right?

There are two movies that we absolutely have to watch as Halloween creeps closer – Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus, both of which have memorable lines and are family-friendly!
