I was browsing Christmas specials online last night when I stumbled upon this little gem from 1981, The Monster’s Christmas. This little gems comes from New Zealand and tells the story of a young girl who is visited during the Christmas season by a group of monsters whose voices have been stolen by an evil witch. and with her help they hope to get their voices back.
It is a sweet little tale with people in foam monster costumes, creative storytelling and beautiful location shoots. I did not see a US DVD online, so ownership might be a bit of a challenge, but luckily someone has uploaded the entire special to the internet for your viewing pleasure.
Perhaps you want to add it your Christmas movie playlist this year?
