Watch Guillermo del Toro's New Mini-film: The Simpsons 'Treehouse of Horror' Opener

Whether or not you’re a devoted Simpsons fan, you’ll want to  catch this opener to Sunday’s annual Halloween
Treehouse of Horror’ episode, gleefully and lovingly directed by the great
Guillermo del Toro.

The sequence is a typical del Toro mix of horror-love and
artistry, as he offers a romp through the genre with references to beloved
movies including The Birds, The Shining and his own Pan’s Labyrinth, with Lisa Simpson as
the heroine. It’s no less than the smartest Simpson deserves.
