The hero of this stop-motion animated film? Only a skeleton who plots to abduct Santa Claus and wants Halloween to stage a hostile takeover of Christmas. And then things get weird -- and spooky -- when a boogeyman-like monster starts torturing the man in red. Oh, and there's also a really cute dog named Zero, a dog that happens to be dead.
