Synopsis

The young girl Clara visits her Aunt Gerda and Uncle Drosselmeyer. Her aunt tells her scary stories about the Ragman, a creepy and mysterious man who turns children into mice if they don't go to bed on time. The Ragman is always spying on sleeping children searching for more victims.
Just before Clara goes to bed her eccentric uncle gives her a wooden nutcracker doll. He's a bit embarrassed because the only part on the doll that's perfect is the heart, but Clara loves her new doll.
She falls asleep but wakes up hearing mice squeaking...

Nominated for the 1980 Saturn Award for Best Fantasy Film and the 1980 Young Artist Award for Best Motion Picture featuring youth. Won the 1980 Young Artist Award for Best Musical Entertainment.

Sanrio the company behind the "Hello Kitty" franchise actually made this. Don't let that be a turn off. Go watch it and forget about "Hello Kitty".

Hard to find, exquisite weird and trippy stop motion movie. Highly detailed, dark yet beautiful.
The story is mysterious and put you in an almost dreamlike state. It's confusing and rather difficult to describe. You'll have to watch it to see what I mean.

I've seen it more than once, and read more
