Monster Movie Madness: Michael Jackson’s Ghosts

Less a movie than a 38 minute long music video, Michael Jackson’s Ghosts portrays Michael Jackson as a loner living on the outskirts of town who enjoys entertaining the local children and who is about to be run out of town by a lynch mob. This was in no way inspired by real life events, right? Said angry mob is lead by the town’s mayor, who bears a striking resemblance to the lead prosecutor in the child abuse case against Jackson in 1993. In fact, if you watch it with a thought toward Jackson’s history and public opinion about him, it’s actually quite sad, as he was no doubt aware of all of the people who thought he was a freak, and it comes through crystal clear in Ghosts*. For maximum entertainment value, it’s probably best to enjoy it on a superficial level.

On a superficial level, this “movie” features: the worst angry mob I’ve ever seen, pretty great makeup effects, decent CG, MJ shooting ectoplasm out of his hands, and a moonwalking skeleton. Worth the watch for the moonwalking skeleton alone!

*However, if Michael Jackson entertained his guests by screaming “HOOOOO!” every few seconds, I’m glad I was never invited to Neverland.

    This is my most favourite movie/video/short-film of MJ.I wish it was a little longer. i’ve watched it only once but i’m crazy about this movie.

    This movie showcases MJ’s talent as an actor,he was also good at acting besides ofcourse his other well-known talents such as singing,dancing etc.

    He acts,dances very well in this movie and i’ve fallen in love with his character “MAESTRO” in it.i just love the part when he says,”Hello,game time!clap,clap”.

    LOL,I love MJ.
