I don't believe it either. If the credits rolled right after that line I'd be ok with this ending, though.

How did this movie end? I remember seeing it as a kid, and I remember liking it a lot, but aside from that one scene where the skeleton guy is trying to fool his peeps into thinking Santa is some kind of hardass serial killer, the entire plot's a hazy blur.
The story stinks, it's incredibly thin. The movie ends when the 2 characters you don't care about finally fall in love, I guess. Jack killed Oogie Boogie too, because he was bad I suppose.
Oogie Boogie dies, Santa is freed, Christmas and Halloween are saved, and Jack and Sally finally kiss beneath the moonlight.
Say what you want about the movie's plot, character's, and fanbase, but damn it was an impressive feat as far as stop motion animation goes, and Danny Elfman's score was absolutely wonderful.
This is a movie you watch for the animation and the songs, both of which were nearly untouched by Burton's influence.
The plot and characters are bland as hell, but it's still worth seeing for the above reasons.
As for the ending, Oogie Boogie turns out to be a thousand bugs in a pillowcase operating via some sort of hivemind. Jack squashes them, then he and Sally just sort of decide to be in love for no reason, and then the movie's over.
I wasn't all that into the songs, either.
Nightmare Before Christmas was kind of a warm up so Henry Selick could make Coraline.
It's still pretty good and it was really striking in the early 90s when most animated movies were Little Mermaid clones. It doesn't really matter if the story is paper thin if it's funny and there's all kind of neat stuff to look at.

An eleventh hour plot twist that goes absolutely nowhere, eh?
Are we sure Hideo Kojima didn't write this?

Man. That totally sucks ass. Nice that they didn't fuck up a good movie with that shit.
