  • The First Treehouse of Horror

    I Think many people watch the Simpsons due to the often outlandish and hilarious Halloween specials. This started the tradition off and It is strong episode

    First off is Bad Dream house which is a Amityville spoof. The family move into a new house and strange things start to happen. I thought that the end was strange but there were a few good laughs.

    Next It was Hungry are the damned which I thought was the weakest segment. The family are abducted by Aliens who want to take them to a feast. Lisa is suspicious and decides to investigate. I had seen the jokes before and while the Cookbook Gag was funny I thought That Kang and Kodos should just be regulated to small gags at the start.

    And Finally it was the absolutely amazing The raven. Homer while Moring the loss of Marge is tormented by a Raven who looks a lot like Bart. The atmosphere and Feel of the segment made it the standout of the Pack


    Goriest segment: Bad Dream house

    Worst segment: Hungry are the damned

    Best Segment: The Raven

    Best Gag: The Cookbook gag in Hungry are the damned

    Worst ending: Bad dream house

    Best ending: The Raven
