Guillermo del Toro’s Kick-Ass The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Opening

Guillermo del Toro Simpsons Episode

It’s been ages since I’ve actually gone through the trouble of watching a new episode of “The Simpsons”. Which is ironic, because I really used to love this show. It’s still okay, but let’s face it, after 6,000 episodes, things tend to get a little stale.

Like they do every year, “The Simpsons” will air a Halloween themed “Treehouse of Horror” episode this year. For those unfamiliar, the annual “Treehouse of Horror” episodes consist of short stories based on famous horror movies/TV shows, but starring the Simpsons family. It’s usually pretty fun stuff.

The director of this year’s “Treehouse of Horror” opening happens to be Guillermo del Toro, and they’ve given him nearly 3 minutes to do it. And boy does it make good use of it. You can see the entire opening for yourself below.

Fans of Del Toro will get a real kick out of it. It doesn’t just show off all the monster movies he was inspired by, but it also features a ton of cameos from his own films, like “Hellboy”, “Pan’s Labyrinth”, “Mimic”, “Cronos”, and “Blade II”.

“The Simpsons” airs its umpteenth “Treehouse of Horror” this Sunday on FOX.
