    Description

    The Nightmare Before Christmas (Touchstone, 1993). Very Fine/Near Mint. Barrier Strip (Lenticular Type 3-D) One Sheet (27" X 40") Hell's Gate Style.
    Since its release over twenty-five years ago, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas has become a permanent addition to a list of films viewed during the holiday season. As the popularity of the film has grown, demand for original posters has risen. No poster from the stop-motion musical fright fest is more sought after than this rare "Hell's Gate" style, which was never sent to theaters. Produced out of photographic material laminated onto plexiglass that creates a 3-D effect, referred to in the industry as a barrier strip image, the poster features an eerily fun filled scene of fan-favorite characters. Jack Skellington, Sally, The Mayor and the impish trio Lock, Shock and Barrel. It's thought that only 25 to 30 of these posters were produced, as they were created for an '"in-house" promotion or as a prototype/concept poster that was ultimately refused by the studio. Created by artist Grayson Marshall. This scarce poster has little if any wear and the most minor surface blemishes. Due to the size/weight of this lot, shipping costs may be higher than usual.
