Illinois homeowner sets Halloween lights to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'

(FOX19) - It's October! While most people decorate for Halloween and put spider webs, pumpkins, and witches on their front porch, one Illinois home is going all out with lights.

Friends Steve Jandick and Nick Thomas have joined forces for the last 15 years to deck out Thomas' Illinois home with a slew of decorations and, more recently, a musical light display that shows how Halloween is really done, reports.

The home's decor includes a lawn filled with statues and tombstones, and topped with lights that are sequenced to go along with 30 songs, including Michael Jackson's "Thriller," Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," Kongos' "Come With Me Now, "and M83's "Midnight City."

The pair begins planning for the light show throughout he year leading up to Halloween. According to, last year was their first year putting on the light show and thousands of people showed up to see it in person.

It's since become a huge attraction in the Chicago suburb and surrounding area. Yahoo News reports around 3,000 and 4,000 people come out on the weekends in October to see it.
