The Simpsons Just Remade An Obscure Indie Horror Movie
From its basic premise to setting for the release, The Simpsons Season 33 Episode 12 was an extended homage to the obscure 2019 comedy-horror Get Duked!
Although The simpsons drew inspiration from many unexpected sources over the years, few viewers expected a season 33 episode to be remade Get Duke!an obscure horror-comedy from 2019. The simpsons has based many episodes of the long-running series on all sorts of surprising sources over its 33 seasons. Over the decades, the series has retold Shakespeare, parodied classic horror films and reimagined biblical stories as part of the cast’s adventures.
The series has been on the air for so long that we The Simpsons Season 33 episodes copied the show itself (although the release changed enough details to still feel fresh). As such, it should come as no surprise to find that The simpsons Season 33 Episode 12 is another extended homage to earlier media. However, the sheer darkness of the film the episode references is quite remarkable.
2019 Scottish indie horror comedy Get Duke! tells the story of three juvenile delinquents (and a nerdy kid needed in hopes of boosting their academic resumes) who are chased down a wild trail by cult killers after being sent on a mountain trek. personal improvement and team building. This specific premise is recreated at a tee in The simpsons season 33, episode 12, “Boyz N the Highlands.” Now, as fans of The simpsonsThe annual ‘Treehouse of Horror’ Halloween specials can attest to this, the show spoofing a famous horror movie is not a new phenomenon. The difference is that Get Duke! is already a comedy as much as a horror, and this The Simpsons The release of season 33 does not usurp the existing film per se.
Instead, the plot of “Boyz N the Highlands” essentially tells the same story as the obscure (but critically well-received) film without ever formally acknowledging where the outing borrowed its plot from. That said, The simpsons episode does not hide its inspiration either. As if to further emphasize the Get Duke! reference, the episode is accompanied by Scottish folk music and the band is chapered by Groundskeeper Willie (although their upland track is presumably somewhere in America, although it sounds more like Scotland than the land of origin of the Simpsons).
This results in a The Simpsons season 33 episode which apparently takes place in Scotland but never confirms it or explains why the group traveled to Europe for a hike. It’s also an episode that faithfully recreates the plot of a largely unknown film but never addresses that fact or lets viewers know where its inspiration came from. Hope this The Simpsons the release of season 33 will encourage new viewers to seek Get Duke!an anarchic and underrated satirical treat that has earned comparisons with Ready or Not when it was originally released. As for The simpsonsSeason 33 has so far been able to at least partially reverse the series’ critical slowdown to solid reviews, so hopefully tapping into inspiration from sources as obscure as Get Duke! will see the creative energies of the show reignited even more.
