Michael Jackson, Thriller: il video in 3D

Il progetto è previsto per il prossimo anno

Era il 1993 quando Thriller, il video ufficiale del brano cantato da Michael Jackson, faceva il suo ufficiale debutto. Da allora, è diventato un vero e proprio cult. Quattordici minuti, quasi un mini film, per uno dei pezzi di maggior successo dell'artista prematuramente scomparso.

E adesso, nel 2014, dopo oltre vent'anni, il regista John Landis - che ha anche diretto film tra cui Blues Brothers e Animal House - spera di rilasciare la clip in Blu-ray e nelle sale dopo aver risolto una disputa con gli eredi del cantante, come riporta il New York Daily News. La vicenda giudiziaria ha avuto inizio circa sei mesi prima della morte di Jackson nel 2009, quando Landis ha intentato una causa proprio per il video di Thriller, accusandol di 'comportamento fraudolento, dannoso e opprimente,' secondo E! Online.

Quella querela è continuata per molti anni, ma ci siamo finalmente accordati, sistemati e mi hanno pagato. Adesso sta per riapparire in un modo molto più chiaro e tridimensionale. Sarà molto eccitante vederlo sul grande schermo

Thriller, lyrics

thriller

[1st verse]
It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking 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

[Chorus1]
'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

[2nd verse]
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 the creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

[Chorus1]
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside of killer, thriller tonight

[Bridge3]
Night creatures call and the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time
(they're open wide)
This is the end of your life

[3rd verse]
They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah.
All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen,
I'll make you see

[Chorus1]
That this is thriller, thriller night
'Cause 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, diller, chiller, thriller here tonight

[Chorus1]
'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

[Rap performed by Vincent Price]
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize your neighbourhood
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 grisly 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
