I'm not a Michael Jackson fan, he's not bad he's just not my cup of tea. However, I really dug Thriller, and that surprised me. The song itself is pretty good, easily the best non-Jackson Five material I've heard from Michael, but it's really the effects and the way that the short pays a loving homage to classic horror that connected with me.
