Anthology movie by, and starring, Michael Jackson in his prime, combining a number of music videos from his bestselling "Bad" album with a fantasy tale of Michael's confrontation with a ruthless drug dealer known as Mr. Big.
Michael Jackson and his date are watching a movie. They leave, and take a shortcut through the graveyard on the way home. Michael turns into a werepanther-type creature, and then later a zombie, as he gets down and funky in a tremendous dance scene to the tune of his song "Thriller."Written by
In 2006, the Guinness World Records listed it as the "most successful music video of all time." See more »
In one scene, Michael's right "cat's eye" contact lens is askew and not in straight. See more »

Honestly, we're out of gas!

During the closing credits, a reprised scene of the zombies dancing is shown. At the end of the credits, they all dance back into their graves, with one of them (Vincent Price) gruesomely grimacing at the screen. See more »
In 2017, it was remastered from the original 35mm negative and converted into 3D under John Landis' supervision. The audio was also updated to 5.7, 7.1 and Dolby Atmos standards.
The remastered 3D version first premiered at the 74th Venice Film Festival on September 4th, 2017 alongside the 'Making Of' documentary.
In 2018 it was further remastered by IMAX and preceded screenings of "The House With a Clock in its Walls" - a 2D version was also submitted for classification in the UK. See more »
Michael Jackson's Thriller (1983) has to be the greatest video ever made. Dude you have Zombies, gore and a catchy tune, what more can you ask for. John Landis mixed elements from Night of the Living Dead and American Werewolf in London and out came this video. What starts out as a nice evening for a young couple turns into a date from hell, literally. You have dancing zombies, a werewolf in a funky jacket and Vincent Price "rapping". A cool video to a song that everybody in the neighborhood marked out to.
I have to give this one a high recommendation because it has to be the best music video ever made. There hasn't been another one like it.
Check out the "making of Thriller". The documentary has some "interesting" stuff in it.
