"Thriller" belongs in "Slither", NOT "13 Going on 30"

    AS a die-hard Michael Jackson fan, I have a complain:

    why the hell was "Thriller", a HORROR song, used in "13 Going on 30"?

    There was nothing scary about that movie except for Jennifer Garner's acting. It was NOT a horror movie. It was a gender-reversed version of "Big", which was NOT a horror movie.

    Wouldn't this be more fitting in "Slither", the self-proclaimed scariest and greatest of all horror movies?

    I mean, just check the lyrics (boldfaced are the most poignant ones):

    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


    '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

    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
    But all the while you hear the creature creepin' up behind
    You're out of time


    'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
    There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
    You know it's thriller, thriller night
    You're fighting for your life inside a killer
    Thriller tonight

    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


    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
    All thru the night I'll save you from the terrors on the screen
    I'll make you see

    That it's a thriller, thriller night
    'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
    Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
    So let me hold you tight and share a killer, chiller
    Thriller here tonight

    '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

    And if are STILL not convinced that this belongs in a horror movie, just check this:

    Darkness falls across the land
    The midnite hour is close at hand
    Creatures crawl in search of blood
    To terrorize y'awl's neighborhood
    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 grizzly 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

    So, bottom line: this has NO BUSSINESS being in a Jennifer Garner comedy.

    LMAO, it's just a tongue-in-cheek song (albeit a great one). It's not supposed to be genuinely scary or taken seriously.

    Toungue-in-cheek horror is still horror. Or wouldn't you cal Evil Dead 2 a horror movie?

    I STILL don't know what horrore has to do with "13 Going on 30".

    Not really. It's not that scary.

    Nothing. But they used the song because it was from the 80s, and the movie was all 'bout the 80s nostalgia.

    There are A LOT of good songs from the '80s, why pick the very one that DOESN'T belong in the movie?

    If there were ever one way to completely obliterate any sort of credibility you might have in one swoop, this is it.

    Because it may be the biggest song of that decade that is why. That Song and video had such a drastic impact on music.

    To be honest though, Michael jackson is a dirty child molestor and really his music as well as the man himself should be banned forever.
