At the beginning of the film, a disclaimer appears: "Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult. Michael Jackson." Jackson was a Jehovah's Witness at the time. 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.
