Fox asked Pacific Rim Director to create the couch gig for the opening of their annual Treehouse of Horror 24 and it does not disappoint.

The eyeballs on the heels of the hands is genius.
Oh I did not see it on You Tube! a friend of mine emailed the story to me this morning. I emailed someone here to see if it was ok to post.
Looking forward to Sunday’s show.
That kitty looks exactly like my girl, a tan tabby, I’ve never seen that expression on her though.....
It was! Mr. Burns never looked so good!
That was epic. There’s so much going on, I’d have to watch it in slow motion to catch everything.
The hypnotoad is from Futurama
Quoth the Raven, "Eat My Shorts."
I’ve seen it five times now and caught something different in each viewing. There are also some things in the background, like a picture of Maggie from an old Treehouse when either Kang or Kodos was her father, and the Great Pumpkin as told by Millhouse.
That was epic! Bravo to Guillermo Del Toro.
Now I’m trying to imagine Ron Perlman with a Scottish accent.
There are so many good and entertaining horror and monster movies that the whole month of October could easily be filled with them.
A triple feature of, first, for younger children, which ends at 8pm; then for older children, from 8:30 to 10:00; then for adults only from 10:30 to Midnight. Of course, in adult only households, it’s more oriented to gender.
But such a bounty to choose from: classical, suspense, shock, drama, comedy, and “so bad they are good” horror movies. There are, of course, serious and very serious horror movies, filled with grotesque and gore, but they aren’t really in the spirit of Halloween.
Then there is Bammy vs. the Constitution. True horror.
Rather Busy - I Liked Cthulhu.
Yes, but while such cancer is horrifying, it is not entertaining or enjoyable.
So did I
It’s one of the few times seeing Lovecraft on TV won’t give me nightmares.
Not a fan of gore and horror. I do like a good Hitchcock film, or a good old murder mystery on TV, ( i loved watching Columbo and Ellery Queen as a kid), but movies that are just slasher films and what not aren’t my thing.
When I was a kid I was scared to death by the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz. I feel bad for kids today, the movies seem much scarier.
They already aired that?
It’s just the first three minutes.
That’s the neat part, you don’t have to have a movie with gore, and the definition of horror is flexible.
For example, the classic monster movies, like Frankenstein, The Boris Karloff Mummy, the Wolf Man, and for an interesting twist, the Mexican version of Dracula was filmed at night during the shooting of the English version, using the same script (and some say the acting was better.)
The entire Godzilla, et al. genre are monster movies, but are inoffensive, as are many of the 1950s movies, like Them.
And there are a whole bunch of not particularly good horror movies that were made fun of by the Mystery Science Theater 3000 guys.
Not scarier just more shocking. Scary Is a mental thing having to do with surprise and the realization that this bad thing could happen to me. Hitchcock movies like "Witness for the Prosecution" were excellent.
