Résumé: Conte fantastique réalisé à l'aide de figurines animées. Les monstres, les vampires, les fantômes et autres sorcières de la ville d'Halloweentown célèbrent leur fête annuelle durant laquelle ils s'amusent à faire peur aux humains. Mais le squelette Jack s'avoue un peu désabusé par ces réjouissances lugubres qui se répètent d'une année à l'autre. Lors d'une promenade en forêt, il découvre un arbre qui donne accès au royaume de Noël. À la fois enthousiasmé et déconcerté par cette fête joyeuse et colorée, Jack décide d'y participer activement. Il fait donc kidnapper Santa Claus pour prendre sa place et met tous ses concitoyens à contribution pour préparer une fête de Noël aux accents résolument halloweenesques. [(c) Médiafilm] . Contient, entre autres, des documentaires sur les coulisses de la production, des scènes coupées, "Vincent" et "Frankenweenie", deux courts métrages de Tim Burton, les commentaires du réalisateur Henry Selick, de Tim Burton et du compositeur Denny Effman ainsi qu'une comparaison entre le scénario-maquette et le film.
