    Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

    Anyone else like this music video with the dancing zombies? I thought it was awesome and it's probably my all-time favorite song.

    Plus the look of the zombies in it inspired the look of the zombies in Day of the Dead.

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    I also think the part where the girl runs into the abandoned house surrounded by zombies was a reference to Barbara in Night of the Living Dead.

    When you're in a horror movie you make poor choices. It's what you do.

    The scene where she is standing with her back against the window and the zombies start breaking through it and trying to grab her seems lifted straight out of Hell of the Living Dead.

    Didn't that movie rip off Night of the Living Dead (among other movies)? Barbara and Helen were having to fight off zombies breaking through the boarded up windows too.

    They were breaking through the door and the two women were trying to block it. They were also facing the incoming zombies and they were not caught by surprise. In Hell Lia is alone in that room, with her back against one of the windows and doesn't know what to do next with all the zombies surrounding the house, then they break the window and grab her by surprise. That scene in Jackson's video seems copied from this movie.

    Well Hell of the Living Dead obviously copied that scene from Night of the Living Dead and if you think you can convince me otherwise I will have you smacked with one hundred wet noodles (or not).

    I just described both scenes. They are not the same. Hell copied that whole scene about the doctor explaining that cadavers are coming back to life from Night, even the line of dialogue is exactly the same, but that is a different part of the movie. Bring on the noodles!

    C'mon, Thriller is a classic.

    Rick Baker, man.

    And it's kinda like a mini movie and not just your typical music video.

    The combination of Jackson and Landis seems so strange if you think about it, yet they made a classic with this video.

    Unfortunately, Scorcese later teamed up with Jackson for "Bad", with very different results...

    I always include thriller on my list of favorite zombie movies. Can't go wrong with zombies and Jackson, also the werewolf was pretty cool. Just one of those unique things that come around once and nobody even dares to copy.

    Yeah I agree. It's because of this awesome music video that I can actually overlook the fact that Michael Jackson may have been a pedophile.
