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.
