Storyline

Adult spoof of Michael Jackson's Thriller musical containing a fan of the super pop star known as Mr J and her fantasies that come to life in an unbridled display of cinematic imagination in her sexual misadventures. Leading lady gets it from a well-endowed werewolf (the transormed Mr. J); is abducted to a strange castle and finally escapes to a graveyard where she joins in an unbelievable orgy of zombies and ghouls and the like. Of course, her kinky explorations are fraught with hot music, dazzling dance routines and spectacular special effects. Written by Anonymous

Inept, hopeless porn take on Landis's "Thriller"
23 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

"Driller...It's a Thriller!" the uninspired ad art exclaimed.

Let's get something straight. This is not a thriller. It's a very bad porn version of John Landis's "Thriller" video, an extended Michael Jackson music clip that was recently voted the "Best Music Video Ever" by some instantly forgotten organization.

Despite the fact that there was clearly some money for sets and make-up effects, AND it was shot on 35mm, the director of this mess, Joyce James, squandered every opportunity to make this thing come alive.

The dance numbers are hopeless, the lighting is several stops under, and the sex is ugly. Greg Dark did all of this and better in "New Wave Hookers", "Devil in Miss Jones 3 & 4", "The Shocking Truth" and "Sex Freaks". And Rinse Dream got similar material right in the classic "Cafe Flesh". The sequence with the masked presidents in a sex orgy is the only worthwhile and slightly horrific aspect of this production.

It's depressing watching something as inept as this and more depressing that checks were cashed to produce it.
