Out This Week: New Releases 2/12


Care to relive those days when there was there was something seemingly dangerous about Michael Jackson’s video for Thriller, in which the countless now-Disney-esque zombies stumbled at you through dark alleys, and when Jacko himself could (semi)convincingly act the bad boy boyfriend before he transformed into something that crawled offstage of Cats? No? Well, then maybe the 25th anniversary edition of Thriller, on shelves this week, isn’t for you. But maybe something else is on Largehearted Boy’s list of new releases.
