Michael Jackson’s Ghosts is a 1996 short film starring Michael Jackson, written by Stephen King and Mick Garris, and directed by Stan Winston. It was filmed and released in 1996 and released along with select prints of the film Thinner. It was first screened in the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. Jackson performs dance routines set to the songs “2 Bad”, “Is It Scary” and “Ghosts”, taken from Jackson’s albums HIStory (1995) and Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix (1997).

The mayor of Normal Valley leads a mob to the mansion of the Maestro, who has been entertaining local children with magic tricks and ghost stories. The children assure the parents the Maestro has done nothing wrong, but the mayor intends to banish him as a “freak”. The Maestro challenges the mayor to a “scaring contest”: the first to become scared must leave. He performs magic tricks and dance routines with a ghostly horde, then possesses the mayor, forcing him to dance. After the performance, the Maestro agrees to leave and crumbles to dust, but returns as an enormous demon. Terrified, the mayor leaps through the window. The families agree that they had fun and allow the Maestro to stay.
