I love you and alex!
Thanks.  I appreciate that.  (To be read in the most sincere voice you can muster.  Think Morgan Freeman.  That's the voice I want you to read that in.)

Chester meant me, but it's cool. You can take credit for my awesomeness.

no, i meant alexarch. But I  DO Love You Junior!!!!

I meant me. And what I say goes. So you meant me, too. Thanks, by the way.

Yeah, can i just defend my last choice, i know some of you young and hip guys will look at that and think i'm all emo cos i like this film, however its not only one of my first christmas film memories but also one of my first film memories, i think i was about 6.

First, you don't have to defend a movie that you like because other people like it. Even if those people listen to Emo music.

Second, I would like you to justify your pick against the fact that it is a Halloween movie and not a Christmas movie. Just for fun.

What, just because some dude dresses up as Santa on Halloween it automatically makes it Christmas?

I think it was released for Christmas, with christmas as a main point in the movie so i think that makes it a christmas film.

Also it has Christmas in the titlle, always a definer.

Many diferent songs attributed to christmas films rather than halloween, i mean how many horror films have the main character singing christmas songs?

Is it ever shown at halloween (of course i don't know in america as...i don't live there) cos i only ever see it on television about 2 weeks before Jesus' brithday.

I'm surprised it didn't take off in the UK until recently. In the US it has been associated with the teen emo/goth  fusion counter-culture movement for a long time. I think at one point, most girls with heavy eyeliner had a shoulder bag with the skeleton head printed on it. Now it's time for my confession . . . I have never seen this movie. I saw the corpse bride, but I'm going to assume this film is superior to the corpse bride in many ways, I hope
