The biggest buzz last week was Guillermo del Toro’s nearly 3-minute long “The Simpsons” couch gag for their annual “Treehouse of Horror XXIV” halloween special. The opening of last night’s episode was plastered with genre references that ranges from the Universal Monsters to giving nods to all of del Toro’s horror features (like Blade 2, Hellboy, Cronos and Pan’s Labyrinth). In fact, there were so many “winks” that multiple viewings were necessary to catch ’em all – and even after watching multiple times, can anyone be sure they caught everything?
MoviePilot took the time to annotate the entire opening, a daunting task, in hopes of sharing each and every movie reference for fans. You can watch the epic video below. Did they miss anything?
