Watch: Unpacking All the Movie References From Guillermo del Toro's 'Simpsons' 'Treehouse of Horror' Opening

The spooky segment was packed with nods to horror movies from “The Birds” and “The Shining” to del Toro’s own “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Blade II” — and it inspired German site MoviePilot to attempt to unpack every reference in the three-minute video.

Yay!!! It's the Phantom from Phantom of the Paradise!!!

If you haven't seen that movie, it's definitely a must see :)


Wow this took a long time and very accurate knowledge even i didnt know half of the references


The background music at the time when Maggie was driving the car was of Psycho!
