Photographer Douglas Kirkland gathers never-before-seen images from behind-the-scenes of Jackson's video 'Thriller', sharing 'The yellow contacts he wore were painful.'

A new book about Michael Jackson reveals never-before-seen images of the star behind-the-scenes of his iconic 1983 video "Thriller". Photographer Douglas Kirkland has gathered all the snaps he took of the singer rehearsing for the horror promo and undergoing the make-up routine that transformed him from pop star to zombie.

The images all appear in "Michael Jackson: The Making of Thriller: 4 Days/1983". Remembering his time on set with Jacko - who died in 2009 - Kirkland writes, "The yellow contacts he wore were painful. So was peeling off the makeup. But he stayed positive. His ability to write, create and perform - he was truly exceptional."

As of late, it was reported that Michael Jackson's "Thriller" will be turned into a movie by director Kenny Ortega.
