6 min


For the love of Gingy!

Make it stop!

I can't get it out of my head!

Yo ho lay dee odl lee ho

Lay dee odl ay...


Honey, are you OK? I've never

heard you scream like that before.

Yeah, what's the matter with you, man?

What kind of person screams

when they see singin' nuns?

It's Halloween for Pete's sake.

That's not the kinda thing

I want to see tonight.

OK, fine, Mr. King of Halloween.

What did you want to see tonight?

Oh, I don't know,

something with mummies!

Or a man-eating plant.

At least a zombie or two.

Zombies don't know

how to lay dee odl lay hee hoo.

That is my point.

Why can we not have both?

A scary musical.

Yeah, and I know

just who's gonna star in it, too.

Now what?

It's after midnight

And something grumpy's

a-headed up the block

I'm calling a taxi.

I got rhythm.

It's such a big fright

That your heart is gonna stop

from all the shock

I hate it when you do this.

You close your eyes

And hope that smell's

just your imagination

Will you make him stop?

Nasty surprise

You hold your breath

and wait for it to pass

Don't be an ass.

- Right, boss.

- Shrek.

You think that's good,

you should hear my Tito.

We've talked about this.

You know how I feel

about spontaneous musical outbursts.

Darkness falls across the land

The midnight hour is close at hand

Creatures crawl in search of blood

To terrorize your neighborhood

And whosoever shall be found

Without the soul for getting down

Must stand and face the hounds of hell

And rot inside a corpse's shell

And though you fight to stay alive

Your body starts to shiver

For no mere mortal can resist

The evil of the thriller

- Now this is Halloween.

- Man, oh, man. Me and my big mouth.

I knew I should've stayed home tonight.

Oh, it's you again.

Fiona, time to go.

Puss. Donkey!

Oh, no! Not this! Not dancing!

All right, that's enough.

You're trapped in thriller

Here tonight

Your brain may say it's wrong, but...

In your heart you know it's right

- To love the thriller

- Woo hoo

You can't fight

You'll dance all through the night

Nothing but... thriller... thriller

- Thriller

- All right. Give me that, you!

Through the night

It will thrill you more

Than any ogre'd ever dare try


And though you might

Try runnin' for your life

You're stuck in... thriller

- Chiller

- Killer

What delight

I'm going to be sore in the morning.

Oh, no.

Oh, come on now, Puss.


Donkey, it's me!

What is...

- Please, tell me it's over.

- Over?

Sweetie, you slept through the previews.

That's right, for the next three hours,

you're looking at nothing

but children and puppets and nuns.

Oh, my!
