"This is Halloween" by Danny Elfman is featured on Just Dance 3, Just Dance Now, Just Dance Unlimited and Just Dance 2018 (in Kids Mode). It was also planned to be on Just Dance Wii 2, but was scrapped for unknown reasons.
Appearance of the Dancers
P1 is a green skeleton with an orange wig. She wears a red hat decorated with cyan fluff and a dark blue feather. She also wears a tattered shirt which covers most of her body.
P2 is a Jack-o-Lantern. His body is orange, he wears a cyan fluff collar along with teal underwear with red suspenders.
P3 is a vampire with dark blue hair. He wears a green long-sleeved shirt under a suit which comes with a red cape. He also wears a golden reverse crucifix on a necklace.
P4 is a witch with long blue hair. She wears a pointy cyan hat with orange highlights and is cloaked in a long blue cape. She also wears black-and-white striped socks.
The routine takes place in a spooky forest at night, in the midst of a Halloween town, with pumpkins in the grass.
During the Vampires’ verse, P4 stirs boiling green liquid from a black cauldron.
During the Corpse Family and Winged Demon’s verse, P3 summons three bats.
At almost the end of the song, P1’ outline glows green four times.
At the end of the song, when P1, P3, and P4 skip around P2, Jack-o-Lanturns float from the sides of the screen.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine, all of which are the same:
All Gold Moves: This is a left-to-right Wave Gold Move:
- P1: Throw your arms in the air.
- P2: Lean in and bend your right arm down.
- P3: Raise your right arm and put your left arm over your body.
- P4: Bend your arms and hands, and lean forward like a zombie.

- In the Xbox 360 version on Just Dance 3, every line of the lyrics that is not yet sung is half hidden by some dead branches.
- In Just Dance 3, the title is spelled as "This is Halloween"; from Just Dance Now onward, however, the spelling has been changed to "This Is Halloween".
- This is Halloween is one of the few remade songs between the Just Dance and Just Dance 3 era that has differences in the menu assets. Specifically, P3’s pose is mirrored in the coach selection screen.
- P2’s costume has been recycled from P2 Professor Pumplestickle, with some changes to his color scheme.
- When P2 and P4 raise their arms in the air before throwing them to the ground the first time, P4 forgets to raise her arms.
- In the Beta version, there were four pumpkin plants on both sides of the screen.
- In the menu icon and in the coach selection screen for the remake, P1 is in a different position than in Just Dance 3, despite every other dancer keeping their original positions.
- In the Just Dance Now files, a placeholder pictogram can be seen. It appears as a white blurred square with a red X on it.
- In Just Dance Now, in the Quartets section, the song was mistakenly placed between Ghostbusters and I Was Made For Lovin’ You for a short period, because its code name in the files is "HalloweenQUAT"'. This has been fixed later.
- This is Halloween was free on October 31 and November 1, 2016 on Just Dance Now to celebrate Halloween.
