A night at the movies turns into a nightmare when Michael and his date are attacked by a hoard of bloodthirsty zombies - only a "Thriller" can save them now.
John Landis brought in the same make-up and special effects wizards he worked with on An American Werewolf in London (1981).
Honestly, we're out of gas!
When Michael and his girlfriend are walking by the cemetery, in the first shot (crane shot) the spotlights illuminating the set are visible.
At the end of the closing credits, a disclaimer appears: "Any similarity to actual events or characters living, dead, (or undead) is purely coincidental." This same disclaimer was seen in John Landis's film An American Werewolf in London (1981).
In 2017, it was remastered from the original 35mm negative and converted into 3D under John Landis' supervision. The audio was also updated to 5.1, 7.1 and Dolby Atmos standards. The remastered 3D version first premiered at the 74th Venice Film Festival on September 4th, 2017 alongside the 'Making Of' documentary. In 2018 it was further remastered by IMAX and preceded screenings of The House with a Clock in Its Walls (2018) - a 2D version was also submitted for classification in the UK.
