Guillermo del Toro Does the Simpsons Halloween Intro

For “Treehouse of Horror XXIV,” The Simpsons got horror auteur Guillermo del Toro to do the opening credits, and he took the opportunity to pay homage to a huge number of scary-movie classics (including one or two of his own).

The episode airs this Sunday. Enjoy.
