Mexican film director, screenwriter, producer, and ‘horror master’ Guillermo del Toro had the honor of creating this title sequence, often referred to as the couch gag, for the Simpsons’ obligatory Halloween-themed Treehouse of Horror XXIV episode. 

Countless horror movie references and cameos are made in the extended three minute clip that was published by Fox’s Animation Domination YouTube channel. 

The new couch gag clip is quickly going viral, and is further reviewed and covered by EntertainmentWeekly, Wired, and CinemaBlend
