Although the Christmas Eve thriller is an old film in 1993, it has good sound and painting, and the way of expression and visual effect are not outdated today. You can see the strong Gothic style from the posters. The film was nominated for best visual effect at the 66th Academy Awards and won two awards: best art director and best creative supervision at the 22nd animation Annie award.
