Disney's A Christmas Carol

Although quite faithful in plot and dialogue, this 3-D, computer-animated, performance-capture thrill ride relies far more on gimmick than tradition. The mutated, paralytic-faced characters are simply creepy, and the script (courtesy of Robert Zemeckis, who did similar work on The Polar Express) heavily emphasizes the horror aspects of this holiday ghost story. 96 minutes PG.
