Post your comments on this article




drew42 -> Gort... (4/10/2013 3:37:11 PM)

Klaatu was the guy he protected. Also, is that the wooden sphere from The First Men In The Moon behind Nosferatu?




hammerfan -> Bald green guy (4/10/2013 3:40:33 PM)

The bald green guy looks like The Thing from the original.




thelockwood -> Maggie alien (4/10/2013 3:48:40 PM)

As Lisa exits the music room, on the left is a reference to Maggie as an alien in a previous Treehouse of Horror




Dellamorte Dellamore -> 'The Mole People' (1956) (4/10/2013 3:54:42 PM)

He's the "El Muerto" graffiti artist.




Skillgannon -> The Satelite Thing (4/10/2013 4:16:59 PM)

This is the original Fly from the 50s.




glaive -> Re your Ralph Wiggum (4/10/2013 4:17:30 PM)

Surely this is a nod to 'Hot Fuzz' (or whatever film Hot Fuzz grabbed it from)...yeah, I KNOW it's not horror per se, but neither is 'Alice in Wonderland'...the clincher for me is the ice-cream (Cornetto).




!ntervention -> The First Men in the Moon (4/10/2013 7:32:37 PM)

Same panel as Gort and the Day the Earth Stood Still. The ball with the segments is from the 1964 film based on HG Wells book. The panels were coated with Cavorite.




matsnowie -> Tod Browning's Freaks (4/10/2013 7:45:05 PM)

That's not "a midget from Tod Browning's Freaks". That is Johnny Eck, the half-boy. And I learned that from Empire Magazine :) (although I can't find which issue the article was in).




Gram Woods -> Is that Calumet baking powder? (4/10/2013 8:30:58 PM)

in the garage on the left




Teamwak -> We also see Clthuthu (4/10/2013 8:46:28 PM)

And we know GDT REALLY wants to make At The Mountains of Madness




The Waco Kid -> oil drum (4/10/2013 9:44:58 PM)

in the garage on the right hand side at the rear is an oil drum with something leaking from it is this a nod to return of the living dead perhaps?




micheltorres -> Military vs Zombies (4/10/2013 11:17:23 PM)

I am not 100% sure about this, but when I saw soldiers vs zombies, I remembered "28 days later", the part where Cillian Murphy and the two girls are "rescued" by Christopher Eggleston and his men, when they leave London.




whazzupfrogzntoadz -> Paintings when Lisa leaves the music room (5/10/2013 11:01:51 AM)

The other paintings on the wall when Lisa leaves the music room all refer to previous Treehouse of Horror episodes, on the left is a group shot of the cast as animals from ep XIII 'The Island of Dr. Hibbert', and the two on the right are of a giant pumpkin from ep XIX's 'It's the Grand Pumpkin, Milhouse' and Homer sat in an armchair from the first Halloween special's 'The Raven'.




Youshouldberunning -> (5/10/2013 1:44:53 PM)

Isn't that a Morlock (from The Time Machine) climbing out of a hole behind Hans Moleman's wall?

They've already got that one.




lozz_c -> (6/10/2013 10:59:15 AM)

The binoculars in the garage, rear window?




elyoda -> Price Tags (6/10/2013 7:34:30 PM)

The only reference I've been able to find to $75, $50 and 2 cents are the bounties on bears, foxes and rabbits respectively in 1949's 'Rebel Rabbit' cartoon - one of the rare Bugs Bunny cartoons where he "loses" at the end. Absolutely no idea how or why it's linked, if it is at all!




Stuart Cooper -> Maggie & Gerald (6/10/2013 9:45:00 PM)

Isn't this a reference to Naked Lunch?




neildfraser -> lisa's red hat (6/10/2013 11:33:50 PM)

lisa's red hat is a cinema ushers from the states. thought it had something to do with the shining. but try googling cinema usher red hat and just get usher the 90's pal of trousersnake. anyone confirm creepy cinema ushers with red hats in movies? cheers




neildfraser -> lisa's red hat (6/10/2013 11:33:51 PM)

Vin Kelly -> Millhouse eaten by giant fish (7/10/2013 1:42:41 PM)

Is this a nod to The Host? When the guy at the beginning is committing suicide by jumping off the bridge and then gets eaten by the monster before he hits the water?




djdarrenjames -> (8/10/2013 3:39:04 AM)

In the same panel as Gort (and a xenomorph) Moleman is painting the logo from Alfred Hitchcock Presents on the wall next to El Barto.




neale76 -> (9/10/2013 7:28:48 AM)

Could the flying dragons be Nazgul / Ring Wraiths on Wings from Lord of the Rings?




cos1042 -> Nelson?!?! (9/10/2013 9:30:33 PM)

Unless I'm mistaken, isn't the "zombified Nelson" actually a zombified Comic Book Guy? Hate to be picky but they are different.




Sebstantial -> RE: Nelson?!?! (16/10/2013 10:15:20 PM)

Giger's alien, not Geiger, and, for good measure, it's pronounced Geeger, just in case there was any doubt.




oldmanrupee -> Ralph (21/10/2013 10:52:54 PM)

Ralph's fate and the ice-cream is an obvious reference to Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg/Nick Frost's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy and that one scene under the church with the reporter in Hot Fuzz.
