THRILLER - 1983
By Michael Jackson
from the album, Thriller

Michael Jackson official website

Directed by: John Landis

I don't expect anyone to ask about Michael Jackson's THRILLER. Everybody knows about Michael Jackson's THRILLER - it's just that iconic.

You may not know that it was directed by John Landis (AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, INNOCENT BLOOD, DEER WOMAN), or that the make-up effects were done by Rick Baker (KING KONG, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, VIDEODROME, GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH, THE FRIGHTENERS, MEN IN BLACK [all], PLANET OF THE APES [2001], THE RING [U.S. - all], HELLBOY, THE WOLFMAN).

You probably know that the actual "Rap" in the song is done by none other than Vincent Price (THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, THE ABOMINABLE DOCTOR PHIBES, EDWARD SCISSORHANDS), and that it starred Playboy Playmate of 1980, Ola Ray. You probably even know it has a guest appearance by then consumate cameo actor, genre fan, and creator of the magazine, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Forrest J Ackerman.

So much has been written and said about Michael Jackson's THRILLER that I don't need to add to it here. All I wanted to do is find the best, highest quality online video of it, and this was the best I could find. Enjoy MJ at his best!

THRILLER
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream, but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller at night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller, tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear a creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller at night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer thriller tonight

Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time
- They're open wide -
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you; there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see

That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul
Would ever dare try
This is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller chiller
Thriller
Ow!
Here tonight

That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghoul
Who'd ever dare try
This is thriller, thriller night
Girl so let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller

I'm gonna thrill ya tonight

Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize your neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

Written by Bernard Belle, Teddy Riley, Rod Temperton, and Michael Joe Jackson
