It’s the perfect time of year to curl up with your favourite festive films as the holidays arrive, staring with Halloween. What’s your favourite spooky flick? A classic horror movie, or something lighter? Leslie Wai clearly has an infinity for the latter, as he’s created a wonderful tribute to Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas by performing “This is Halloween” using nothing but sounds recorded from spooky decorations.
We never realised that something as simple as pouring candy from one bucket to another had so much musical potential--but we can’t help feeling a little disappointed that Wai wasn’t able to incorporate that cheesy but iconic electronic wailing sound effect that so many animated Halloween figures use.
