Musical Montage: Michael Jackson “Thriller”

This month we’re celebrating everything Halloween and Horror related in Action Hero of the Week (turning into Horror Icon of the Week) and Musical Montage, where we’ll feature music from horror movies and music videos with horror elements.  We kick things off the only way possible, with not only the greatest horror themed music video ever, but arguably the greatest music video, period, Thriller by Michael Jackson.  Music video doesn’t feel like the right word for Thriller though as it’s a 13 minute short film with insane special FX from Rick Baker, voiceover from Vincent Price and dozens of dancer extras in zombie makeup that ultimately break it down with Michael for the iconic Thriller dance. I’m sure you’ve seen it before but if you’ve been living under a rock for the last 2 decades, you can check it out below.
