My favorite part of the 3 minute open was when Springfeldians were being chased by classic movie monsters!
Some of the horror allusions are easily recognizable: everyone knows who Frankenstein is, right? Some of the bits are harder. I am not a big horror movie fan because I don't like being scared, but I have read about a lot of the clips. I know what The Shining is, even though I haven't seen it. A lot of horror authors appear, like Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Alfred Hitchcock, Edgar Allen Poe, and HP Lovecraft.
Anyone remember this classic scene? Bart writes it on the chalkboard before being faced with an animated Stephen King!
More on this tomorrow!
