Halloween is just round the corner and it’s time to be scared and frightened! Did you remember the famous song of Michael Jackson, Thriller? And the music video?


“It’s close to midnight, and somethin’ 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 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…”


Get ready to celebrate Halloween with the DVDs of the top 10 classic horror movies of all time! And don’t forget to include the Thriller music video in your DVD list.

hi, great hub. I must agree Poltergeist was my favourite from thelist. Hellraiser I just couldn't watch without a cushion to hide behind.

The film that really gives me the creepsthat's noton your list is Candyman.

Very enjoyable Hub.
