Thriller still creeps me out.  That scene in the end when MJ turns to the camera with the cat eyes, and you hear that evil laugh.  :o

Still a great video, but I never watch it when I am alone in the dark ;D

My dad was the bearded guy in the cinema watching the "movie" at the beginning of the thriller video, when MJ turned into a werewolf.
