Saturday 9: Thriller

Saturday 9: Thriller (1983)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) In this video, Michael Jackson is transformed into a "werecat," with fangs, claws, yellow eyes and whiskers. What  monster or ghoul frightened you the most?

A. The Wicked Witch of the West on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

2) Michael sings that evil things that will be lurking "close to midnight." Where will you be at midnight tonight?

A. Flying across the face of the moon on my broomstick.

3) Horror movie icon Vincent Price does the voice over on "Thriller." What's your favorite scary movie?

A. I don't watch scary movies anymore, but when I was young I liked the movie SSSSS. I wasn't supposed to watch it, but when we visited my grandparents they would go to bed early and we would stay up late and watch horror shows. Now my favorite Halloween movie movie is Practical Magic, which says a lot about my change in taste of movie fare, I think.

4) Mr. Price's House of Wax, made in 1953, was one of the first 3D movies. What's the most recent 3D movie you saw?
A. I don't watch 3D movies. They make me sick to my stomach, literally.
5) Horror fans might be surprised to know that, despite his sinister image, Mr. Price enjoyed very genteel and relaxing hobbies, like cooking, gardening and painting. What would we be surprised to learn about you?
A. That I really am a witch in spite of my demur ways and shy smile. Just ask my brother.
6) A Halloween tradition is the jack-o-lantern. Did you carve a pumpkin this year?
A. Sure. I waved my magic wand, and Poof! there was pumpkin that looked like Donald Trump.

7) According to Yahoo!, the most popular costume of Halloween 2014 was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Will you be in costume this Halloween? If not, who or what would you most like to dress up as?
A. If I had the figure for it (which I do not), I would dress up like Xena: Warrior Princess.
8) When you went trick or treating as a kid, did you usually wear a store-bought costume, or was it DIY?
A. Both. It depended on the year. Many times though I went as a hobo.

9) When trick-or-treaters show up at your door, what candy will they get?

A. I don't have trick-or-treaters. I live in the country and too far off the road.


I encourage you to visit other participants in Saturday 9 posts and leave a comment. Because there are no rules, it is your choice. Saturday 9 players hate rules. We love memes, however.


  1. I don't get trick or treaters, either. But I might have to buy a bag of candy "in case"! ;-)

  2. You know what is nice about traveling by broomstick? You can park them anywhere if you wanted to jump into the store while you are out.

  3. My dad told me the flying monkeys terrified him as a kid. So I guess The Wizard of Oz inspired quite a few shivers.

  4. Sigh, again with the horror movies. Did not dress up, do not get trick-or-treaters where I live (apartment dwellers hit nearby residential streets), but I did give out plenty of treats at work that day and when I worked Monday night.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
