What’s this? What’s this? It’s the perfect Christmas party for anyone who likes their holidays to be slightly more ghoulish.

According to Insider, the Elysium nightclub in Austin, Texas, will be hosting a "Nightmare Before Christmas" festival on Dec. 20.

"The Nightmare Before Christmas," directed by Harry Selick and created by Tim Burton, is the 1993 Halloween/Christmas movie hybrid that featured classic songs by composer Danny Elfman, including “What’s This?,” “Making Christmas,” and “Kidnap Sandy Claws.” Since it was released, it has been a family movie favorite for both kids and adults alike.

Of course, in order to imbibe in "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Gothic Ball and Bazaar, you have to be 18 or older. The festival will feature signature cocktails created in honor of the film’s characters, according to Insider. The festival will feature a Jack cocktail made with chocolate vodka and coffee liqueur, a Sally cocktail made with coconut rum, raspberry vodka, and fruit juice, and a bevy of other themed drinks with names like Deadly Nightshade, Worm’s Wort, and Sandy Claws.

Naturally, the bar will be playing "The Nightmare Before Christmas" on a big screen during the night. A cast of characters will also be in attendance to take pictures and act out certain scenes from the movie, Insider reported. And, of course, attendees are encouraged to wear costumes. So, dust off that Jack and Sally couples costume from last Halloween.

According to Insider, there will be other performers as well as shopping and food vendors for the night, including DJ Crescendoll and DJ Neph. Sing-a-longs are also expected to entertain the crowd.

The event will be held only on Dec. 20 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Elysium nightclub. Tickets are between $10 and $13 and are already on sale.
