On a dark and eerie night, Michael Jackson and a young woman are seen together in a car that Michael is driving, when they stop outside a wooded area to take a romantic walk. Michael gives the girl a ring and explains that he is unlike any other fellow; but the girl explains that this is why she likes him! Michael says emphatically that she doesn’t understand him: that he really is different from other boys. As he is explaining this, the full moon appears… Michael hides his face and the girl asks him why he is doing this. When he looks back at her his face has changed! He is suddenly looking like an animal, covered in hair, with elongated eyes and teeth like a wolf. He’s becoming a werewolf! He pushes the girl away as she screams, and she turns and runs. Michael the werewolf chases her; she stumbles and falls and when Michael reaches her, he is a werewolf.
Suddenly the scene changes to a crowded movie theater where Michael and his girlfriend are watching a werewolf film. The girl is terrified; Michael enjoys it. The girlfriend is too frightened to stay so she gives Michael her popcorn and leaves the theatre. Michael goes after her and when he catches up with her outside, it’s clear she doesn’t like horror films. But Michael seems relaxed as he stands in front of the theatre marquis that reads, ”Thriller.”
As the pair walks through the deserted streets, passing a cemetery, Michael is teasing his girlfriend for being afraid of a mere film. She tells him she was not afraid, but he keeps taunting her, dancing around her in circles. All of a sudden, zombies start to emerge from the darkness, climbing out from their tombs in the cemetery. Within moments they have surrounded the pair. Now the girl realizes that Michael is one of them… Michael and the zombies dance in tandem.
The girl races to a nearby abandoned house, flying up the stairs and slamming doors behind her for protection. But the zombies have followed her and suddenly they have broken through into the room where she is hiding. They move toward her and it looks as if she may be totally in their control.
A new scene suddenly: The girl wakes up in the same room of the same house as the one that appeared in her nightmare, but it seems it must have all been a horrifying nightmare. No one except her boyfriend is in the room with her and Michael calms her and tells her she is safe, although they must now leave. As they leave, Michael looks at the camera with his yellow eyes; clearly these are not ”human” eyes.
As the video comes to a close, the zombies are returning to their tombs in the cemetery and the worst of the group scowls at the camera. Who knows what has happened here?
