Co-Produced by Michael Jackson for MJJ Productions, Inc.

Director: Colin Chilvers
Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California
Michael Jackson's short film for ""Smooth Criminal"" was the sixth of nine short films produced for recordings from Bad, one of the best selling albums of all time. The ""Smooth Criminal"" single hit No. 1 in Spain and The Netherlands and reached the Top 10 in the UnitedStates, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland. In the United States, ""Smooth Criminal"" reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100-the sixth single from Bad to do so-as well as Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles charts.
In addition to being a standalone short film, ""Smooth Criminal"" became the centerpiece of Michael's most ambitious film project at the time, Moonwalker, a feature-length film that was released theatrically in various countries outside of the United States. In the ""Smooth Criminal"" portion of the film, Michael and his friends face off against the notorious drug lord Mr. Big (Joe Pesci) and attempt to foil his plot to get the children of the world hooked on drugs-but of course, in the end, Michael defeats the villain.
The musical portion of ""Smooth Criminal"" takes place in the magical ""Club '30s,"" where Michael instructed his friends to meet him. While Katie (Kellie Parker), Zeke (Brandon Adams) and Sean (Sean Lennon) find the club to belong abandoned, Club '30s springs to life when Michael shows up, wearing a blue and white pinstripe suit and fedora.
As the kids watch through the window, Michael flips a coin into the jukebox and leads the club patrons through a dazzling performance to ""Smooth Criminal."" Here, Michael shows off updated versions of his signature dance moves. He also debuts one of his most iconic dance moves: the ""anti-gravity lean,"" a seemingly impossible move.

    So, what’s the story here? Annie is in her room, a man comes in...silence for a moment...then the dance starts, Annie is now being sexually assaulted by the man, @5:13 the man explodes, then after at 5:19 the phallic symbol drops, then at 5:27 the man “oooohs” then we enter into Annie’s view of the situation, everything is blurry, there’s a man over her, then we have the odd pause and screams from everyone from 5:42 to 6:15, this is Annie screaming from her sexual assault, the blood stains on the carpet are left as the criminal escapes, then Annie’s parents, hearing the screams, run into her room and ask her over and over “if she’s okay??” The police are called at the 8:40 mark but the smooth criminal gets away. Also, we see Annie at 6:55 (who Michael winks at) and she is taken with a scream at 8:54. And at 7:34, we see that Annie might actually be a young boy, who is sexualized here as a man, as he dances just like Michael.
