VOTD: Guillermo del Toro's "Simpsons" Opener

The annual "Treehouse of Horror" installment of Fox's "The Simpsons" airs this Sunday night. Ahead of the airing, the Guillermo del Toro-directed opening credits have gone online.

The near three-minute sequence are a tribute to horror film and literary classics (from "Phantom of the Paradise" to Lovecraft, Poe and Matheson), along with some small appearances from his own films including "Pan's Labyrinth," "Hellboy," "Blade 2," "Mimic," "The Devil's Backbone" and "Cronos".
