Everyone is waiting with excitement for the 666th episode of The Simpsons.
It was funny enough that it is the 666th episode of The Simpsons, but the “Treehouse of Horror” episode will be launched this October, and it will incorporate Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water and Netflix’s “Stranger Things” in the episode. Now that is something seriously worth waiting for. We can’t wait to see which character will play who in the episode and how it will end up. But we are extremely excited to watch The Simpsons merge with our favourite genre.
However, we don’t really have to wait so long just to see The Simpsons’ characters playing as horror movie icons. That is where fan art comes in. The talented artist Peter Mahoney spent several months working on his project “Simpsons meets horror.” You will be seeing a lot of references from films like Nightmare on Elm Street, The Exorcist, Jaws, The Ring, and From Dusk Till Dawn.
The mashups are pretty creative as the characters are morphed into horror movie icons we never thought we could see them as. For example, Marge as Samara from The Ring, Homer disguised as Chief Brody and Moe as Gizmo. Scroll down below and enjoy the freaky fan art:
One, two, Neddy’s coming for you…
How will you call for help now?
Mars attacks? More like Marge attacks.
The power of Jazz compels you!
From Dusk Till Dawn, Marge looks incredible though.
Jaws. The shark should just go after the doughnut in the water because that is what I’m mostly sad about.
Welcome to Prime Time, Marge.
Springfield Police have just unearthed some disturbing archival video footage.
The Simpsons as Beetlejuice is brilliant.
Chose the wrong day for swimming on Friday the 13th.
Ghostbusters! Maggie as a ghost looks cute instead of creepy.
Evil Dead? Nah, Evil Ned!
Turn off the TV. Samar- I mean, Marge is coming!
You better not fall asleep. Freddy will come for you.
Gizmo, but played by Moe, so it’s going to be Gizmoe.
We all float down here.
If Mahoney’s art still wasn’t enough for you, we have more illustrations of the Simpsons playing as other roles from the horror genre. Witch Crafts illustrated The Simpsons in their own alternative pop culture style, and we are here for it! Scroll down below if you haven’t had enough of these already:
This is the Adam’s Family. Simpsons who?
Frankenstein, but where is little Maggie?
The burnt skin won for me.
*Chuckles* I’m in danger.
Some Disney inspiration too.
The Beetlejuice family, but Bart’s character is nightmare fuel.
With evil on her mind.
