Twelve Hundred Ghosts

There are countless versions of Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol on film and video (and comic books, cartoons, video games, stage performances, radio, and other media). Heath Waterman combined 400 of them them all in a supercut to tell the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Christmas Eve in which the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future paid him a call. He worked on this project for 18 months, and the result is a masterpiece. Seeing the many faces of Scrooge is quite an experience. It's 53 minutes long, which is pretty much what you need to get the whole story, so you might schedule some time this holiday season to enjoy it all. Don't miss the credits, either.
