Burton's Nightmare Was A Feverish Dream
Quirky film-maker TIM BURTON has revealed his cult cartoon THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS was the result of a feverish dream. The director admits the 1993 classic, which has just been re-released in 3-D, started off life as a hallucination. Burton explains, "I had a 108-temperature fever that night... I think that's where you get your best ideas - the ones that kind of come out of your subconscious."
