Another Thriller Day's Eve is upon us once again -- and while you're feverishly boning up on how to dance like one of the zombies in Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video so that you may join the throngs descending on Davis Square tomorrow, here's an extra fiendish stocking stuffer for you. Listen to original "Thriller" director John Landis
talk about his now-classic undead-shuffle creation (and how they don't
make music videos like they used to anymore), plus weird tales from Beverly Hills Cop III, an explanation of Landis's signature "See You Next Wednesday," and a little good-natured dissing of upcoming apocalypse epic 2012. We teased this one a bit in our Rock & Shock roundup; now you can enjoy the whole thing in its pretty-much-unabridged glory.
PODCAST: John Landis, at Rock & Shock (October 2009) [MP3]
