Michael Jackson: Thriller (1983 Video)
Narration: Darkness falls across the land / The midnight hour is close at hand / Creatures crawl in search of blood / To terrorize y'all's neighbourhood / 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 40,000 years / And grizzy 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.
Michael: [singing] 'Cause this is THRILLER, thriller night! And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike! / 'Cause this is THRILLER, thriller night! You're fighting for your life inside a killer, THRILLER! / THRILLER, thriller night! 'Cause I can scare you more than any ghoul could ever dare try! / THRILLER, thriller night! You're fighting for your life inside a thriller, THRILLER!
Michael's Girl: Can we get out of here?
Michael: No, I'm enjoying this!
Michael's Girl: Well, I can't watch!
[runs outside; Michael follows her]
Michael: It's only a movie!
Michael's Girl: It's not funny.
Michael: You were scared, weren't you?
Michael's Girl: I wasn't that scared.
Michael: Yeah, you were scared.

Michael: Honestly, we're out of gas!

Title card: Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult. - Michael Jackson
Michael: [singing] 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!
Michael: What's the problem? Come on, I'll take you home.
Michael: [singing] 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 the creature creeping up behind / You're out of time!
Michael: [singing] 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. All through the night, I'll save you from that terror on the screen / I'll make you scream!
Michael: There's something I've got to tell you.
Michael's Girl: Yes, Michael?
Michael: I'm not like other guys.
Michael's Girl: Of course you're not. That's why I love you.
Michael: No, I mean I'm different.
Michael's Girl: What are you talking about?
Michael: Can I ask you something?
Michael's Girl: What?
Michael: You know I like you, don't you?
Michael's Girl: Yes...
Michael: And I hope you like me the way I like you...
Michael's Girl: Yes...
Michael: So I was wondering if... you would be my girl...
Michael's Girl: Oh, Michael!
