An extended couch gag for the upcoming Halloween special. Brilliant and hilarious. Enjoy:
How many classic horror flicks can you spot in there?
This is magnificent! I don’t want to try to count the bits because there are so many my eyes were crossing. Love it, love it, love it.
Seen it several times since I first found out about it yesterday. Brilliant. Keep finding things I missed before. Most recently the Mutant from This Island Earth is running with the classic movie monster pack (lead by Frankenstein). It’s on the far side of the pack (about the 1:53 mark). Wondering if the three-eyed crow at the beginning is supposed to be a Game of Thrones reference. Also love the pan by all the classic sci-fi creatures like the B9 robot, an Alien alien, 20 Million Miles to Earth’s Ymir, Earth vs The Flying Saucer martians, the Fly, Gort, even Kang and Kodos are flying in their saucer above all these and shoot down Robot Monster’s gorilla astronaut. And of course my favorite part, ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.
Forgot to add that the item on the grocery store conveyor belt in front of Maggie is the scarab device from the early 1993 Guillermo del Toro movie Cronos.
The other item on the grocery store conveyor belt in front of Maggie is, of course, a golden clockwork warrior from Hellboy 2: The Golden Army :-)
Zombies (not sure if they are from specific movies)
Blade: Trinity = vampires and Blade
The Toxic Avenger
The Birds and Hitchcock
The Shining (write one hundred times ….) and Stephen King.
The Phantom of the Opera x 4
The Raven perched on Edgar Allan Poe’s arm at 1:42
Alice in Wonderland
Frankenstein and Bride
The Creature from the Black Lagoon
Jason and the Argonauts = sword-wielding skeletons
Hellboy and Johann Krauss and Ogdru Jahad (?)
My eyes need a rest and I need to see more movies to catch all the references.
