In addition to Thriller, Michael Jackson also made another full length Halloween special / music video called Ghosts. In this feature, Michael plays many characters with the help of special effects and impressive makeup and body suits. Some call it a followup to to Thriller, at least in the same vein. Either way I find it very enjoyable and have been watching it at this time of year since it debuted in 1997.
Halloween is right around the corner. It’s difficult to imagine Halloween in popular culture and not think of Thriller by Michael Jackson. Back in the days when music videos actually aired on music channels like MuchMusic and MTV, this video would play in regular rotation around this time year. It always creeped me out when I was a kid – but I still always looked forward to it.
Wishing you a safe, fun and spooky Halloween full of your favourite candy & chocolate!
