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).

Treehouse-of-Horror-XXIV

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).

The episode will air this Sunday (06/10/13). Happy Halloween everyone!

Thanks to @Steve_Jude for sending me this.

Movie Line Rhymes – Jordan Laws

Simple thought, near excellent execution… Wish I’d thought of it.

Movie Line Rhymes – Jordan Laws

Inspired by lifelong obsessions with beats, rhymes and feature films, Jordan Laws delivers an ingenious mega-mix of classic movie lines. But this isn’t some slapped-together highlight reel. Laws produced an original beat, scoured movie scripts for memorable lines that fit his masterful puzzle and matched up these segments line-by-line, rhyme-by-rhyme. The result is an energetic and poetic ride thru cinema history, both high and low art merged into a single piece. This unique achievement cements Jordan Laws’ status as one of the most innovative video remixers on the planet. #Werk
