    Produced by Quincy Jones for Quincy Jones Productions
    From the album Thriller, released November 30, 1982
    Released as a single January 23, 1984
    THE SHORT FILM
    Director: John Landis
    Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California
    Michael Jackson's short film for "Thriller" was the third of three short films produced for recordings from Thriller, which continues its reign as the biggest selling album of all time with worldwide sales in excess of 105 million as of June 1, 2016 and in December 2015 became the first ever album to be awarded triple diamond status (i.e.: sales in excess of 30 million) by the RIAA for US sales alone. The "Thriller" single reached No. 1 in four countries in 1984, topping the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart as well as charts in Spain, France and Belgium. The song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, making Thriller the first album to feature seven Top 10 singles. The Recording Industry Association of America certified "Thriller" Gold and Platinum on December 4, 1989.
    The groundbreaking short films for the Thriller album, starting with "Billie Jean," following up with "Beat It" and culminating with the epic, nearly 14-minute "Thriller," truly expanded the possibilities of "music video" as art form. "I wanted something that would glue you to the set, something you'd want to watch over and over," Michael wrote in his 1988 memoir Moonwalk. "I wanted to be a pioneer in this relatively new medium and make the best short music movies we could make."
    In the short film's extended prologue, Michael's moonlit date with his girlfriend (played by model Ola Ray) is interrupted by his sudden transformation into a howling werewolf. While the "real" Michael and Ola, observing the scene in a movie theater, walk home from the their date, Michael teases her by singing the verses of "Thriller."

    It's close to midnight
    Something evil's lurkin' 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
    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
    Girl, but all the while
    You hear a creature creepin' up behind
    You're out of time
    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 the terror on the screen
    I'll make you see

    Darkness falls across the land
    The midnight hour is close at hand
    Creatures crawl in search of blood
    To terrorize y'all's neighborhood
    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 forty thousand years
    And grizzly 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
    'Cause this is thriller
    Thriller night
    And no one's gonna save you
    From the beast about to strike
    You know it's thriller
    Thriller night
    You're fighting for your life
    Inside a killer thriller tonight
    'Cause this is thriller
    Thriller night
    Girl, I can thrill you more
    Than any ghoul would ever dare try
    Thriller, thriller night
    So let me hold you tight
    And share a killer, thriller
    I'm gonna thrill you tonight
    'Cause this is thriller
    Thriller night
    Girl, I can thrill you more
    Than any ghoul would ever dare try
    (Thriller, thriller night)
    So let me hold you tight
    And share a killer, thriller
