Halloween short
5 October 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Shrek and the gang come out of the theater after watching The Music with Sound. He is furious that he wasted his time on Halloween night. Donkey brings on a sing-along of the Michael Jackson song Thriller. It's a Halloween short. The sad truth is that it's an easy spoof and quite frankly, less fun than the Jackson video. It doesn't even do it right. Shrek and Fiona should be on date night. She should be the one doing Michael. Nevertheless, it's fun to have the characters doing the dance and replacing the zombies in the video.
