“ Segments -"The Shinning", "Time and Punishment", "Nightmare Cafeteria."

I cant say that much about this episode that already hasn't been said. It is considered by many to be one of the five best Simpsons episode period, let alone the best Treehouse of Horror episode. The Shinning was easily the best parody of any horror movie out there. And Time and Punishment is my favorite segment of any Treehouse of Horror ever. The shinning is close second. The last was decent, good but not great. ” - Salacious_Bum

The eighteenth Simpsons Halloween Special features parodies of the movies "E.T." and "Mr. and Mrs. Smith." (22 mins.)
“ Another very lazy episode. Segments - "E.T., Go Home", "Mr. & Mrs. Simpson", "Heck House." It seems that anything with E.T. in its title that doesn't have Spielbergs name attached to it is meant to suck, so is the case with E.T parody in this episode. Heck House was really the saving grace of this episode ” - Salacious_Bum
