How well do you know Vincent Price's part of 'Thriller'?

It just wouldn't be the same without this horror legend's spoken word segment!

To say that Michael Jackson's 1983 hit "Thriller" off the album with the same name made a huge impact on pop culture would be an understatement. The track became the seventh top-ten hit off the album and became one of the bestselling singles of all time. The music video was the first music video to be inducted into the National Film Registry, and many regard it as one of the best music videos of all time.

Of course, when you want a dramatic voice for your spooky hit song, who else would you go to but Vincent Price? His monologue near the end, while sometimes edited down for radio, is one of the things that makes this song such a classic. The horror legend known for House of Wax, The Fly, The Tingler, and many, many other films nailed the spoken-word section in only two takes.

Took the quiz - got 6 out of 8 - then just had to watch the video - the whole video too all 14 mins of it.
Been wanting to watch it for a long time and this quiz gave me just the reason to do it.
Definitely NOT sorry.

6/8 I confess, I was so enthralled by the music and tone of Vincent Price's voice, I never actually heard everything he was saying. I mostly guessed.
