Guillermo del Terror

To celebrate the release of their latest Halloween offering, ‘Treehouse of Horrors XXIV’, Matt Groening is putting Simpsons’ iconic couch gag in the fantastically horrible hands of Guillermo del Toro (apparently they have a good eye for this).

Del Toro did more than just a quick TV gag, he went to ghost town and created a 2 minute 45 second intro, transforming our beloved Simpsons’ characters into the most feared creatures from horror-history. The intro is packed with so many references it will keep your wide eyes glued to the screen for the entire time and even then you’d be hard pressed to spot them all. There is an obvious slant towards Del Toro’s on films but that just makes it more enjoyable, I  let out inward squeel when I saw Homer morph into a reaper from Blade 2 or on seeing  Groundskeeper Willie as  Red (Hellboy not Morgan Freeman).
