Under the blazing sun, a flash mob re-enacted Michael Jackson's 1983 horror-themed music video, Thriller, outside Raffles Place MRT station yesterday. Led by Mrs Crystal Wagar, wife of the United States Ambassador to Singapore Kirk Wagar, the group thrilled passers-by with their moves and zombie outfits. The performance is a prelude to ACM After Dark: Horror Mash-Up, a Halloween-themed event featuring an East-meets-West programme, during which visitors can meet zombies within the Asian Civilisations Museum's galleries and attend indoor movie screenings of Asian and Western horror films. This event takes place on Saturday from 7pm to 11pm, and is held in conjunction with arts festival River Nights 2016.
