- SORT BY:
The Simpsons continues its annual Halloween tradition with the fourth installment of the "Treehouse of Horror" series.
This episode in the long running Halloween series is the best since the premier "Treehouse of Horror" episode. The stories are all fantastic. They are very well written and will keep you laughing through out. Again The Simpsons shows its excellent talent for parody with "Terror at 5 1/2 Feet". A terrific parody of one of the best episodes of The Twilight Zone ever. "The Devil and Homer Simpson" will have you laughing from start to finish. The scenes of Homer's trial are very well done. The dialouge and sight gags all work perfectly. A comedy of horror for sure!moreless
One of the best Treehouse of Horrors.
The Devil and Homer Simpson: A very good segment with lots of humor. Homer selling his soul just for a doughnut was great. My favorite part was the ironic punishment scene where Homer ate every doughnut in the world. Grade: A
Terror at 5 1/2 Feet: Had some good moments and laughs, like Bart going crazy, but got kind of lame at some parts. I liked it, but it's definitely my least favorite short out of the three.
Bart Simpson's Dracula: I love this segment, the dialogue in this one was priceless, and the ending was comedy gold. It's tied with the first segment as my favorite short.
An overall excellent Treehouse of Horror.moreless
Second Best THOH
The Devil and Homer Simpson: Homer sells his soul, but is eventually sent to Hell, until Marge convinces the devil to have a trial for Homer. At the trial, Homer is freed, but the devil turns his head into a doughnut. Best segment on here, lots of hilarious moments. A+
Terror at 5 1/2 ft: Bart claims to have seen a gremlin on the bus. Some funny parts, but not that great. Weakest segment. C
Bart Simpson's Dracula: Mr. Burns is a vampire, and he bites Bart, and the family goes to kill Burns so Bart can return to normal. However, after killing Burns it's discovered that Marge is the head vampire, and everyone in the family is a vampire. Funny, falls just a little short of the first segment. A-
Overall, an entertaining episode for all to enjoy, watch the first segment if yo haven't seen it (although it's pretty well known.) 9.5/10 Amoreless

Annual Treehouse of Horror Stories:
The Devil and homer Simpson- Homer promises to trade his soul for a donut, and the devil, looking like Ned Flanders, makes sure he keeps his end of this bargain. Grade- A
Nightmare At 4 1/2 Feet- Bart thinks he sees a gremlin on the bus. C+/B-
Bart Simpsons' Dracula- The Simpsons think Burns is a vampire, which he is, but they also think he is the head vampire. Turns out the head vampire is actually Marge. Grade- B

Homer the Vampire Slayer
This is another one of the most perfectly done anthology halloween episodes of Simpsons. I really love the fact that the format homages on Rod Stirling's "Night Galery" (another of my favorate anthology horror shows)and all those painting in the background.
The Devil and Homer Simpson: Homer has done a lot of stupid things in his lifetime but selling his soul for a doughnut takes the cake, in fact it's probably the stupidest bargin anyone would make in the entire universe. It was really funny and made sense the Ned Flanders would be The Devil, he still had a bit of that personality we knew well but had evil attached to it to make him a bit menicing. My favorate part in that tale was of course seeing Homer go to Hell and then he's hooked up to that torture machine to eat all of the doughnuts in the world, and he litterally does just that. Nightmare at 5 and a half feet: A parody on of course "The Twilight Zone" anthology tale "Nightmare at 1,000 feet" it was just funny and a bit sad seeing poor Bart trying to prove to everyone there is a gremlin destroying the bus but of course everyone believes he's crazy or as usual their all just too stupid to even look out the window enough. Bart Simpson's Dracula: This is my fifth favorate anthology tale in the series. Monty Burns was great in the Dracula role. It even had a small homage in once scene where Bart and the other kids hover above Lisa's window which was toward both the movie "The Lost Boys" and Steven King's "Salem's Lot". But of course this who story is driven by the jokes, two of my favorates are of course seeing Bart as usual exersise stupidity when he is running for his life he then stops to activate a lever labeled "Super Fun Happy Slide" even Homer almost falls for the trap, yeah unfortunately this further proves Bart has a lot of his father in him.
But most of all it was the vampire slaying sequence which just made me laugh my head off. Where Homer sticks and hammers the stake in the wrong place ouch, but then gets it right of course second time around and gets fired by Burns before he dies, comic gold. But the twist end is great just when you think it's over it's not.moreless

The 4th Halloween Special Episode
This was a well written episode. The first and second stories were great, but the third one was excellent. My favorite character is Mr. Burns and the third part involved him, so that made me happy. He was a vampire and he bit Bart. Everyone had to try to kill the head vampire. They killed Mr. Burns, but then everyone thinks that they are the head vampire. It ends with Marge saying that she is the head vampire. The first part's funniest thing was when Homer ate tons and tons of donuts. Excellent episode. keep up the good work, simpsons writers!moreless
Dracula has something to say.. Oh and the Devil also.
This episode was a 2/3 score- two really good storys- First one tells a tale of Forbidden doughnut- thats a classic, with the devil Flanders.. It was really great. second one was funny but I didn't like it very much. The third one though was great- with Mr.Burns as Vampire !. To sum up.. mmm.. Forbidden doughnut.. *drools*. 8.7.
