Montgomery Burns:Yes, by cutting off cable TV, and the beer supply, I'll be able to ensure an honest winter's work out of those low-lifes...
Smithers:Sir, did you ever stop to think that maybe it was doing this that caused the previous caretakers to go insane and murder their families?
Montgomery Burns:Mmm, perhaps. Tell you what, we come back and everyone's slaughtered, I owe you a Coke.

Better then Halloween 4, 11 February 2010
Author: atinder from United Kingdom

There Halloween tales First tale was The Shinning The Simpsons are asked by Mr Burns to caretaker Hotel, before Mr Burns leaves Smithers kill the Cable TV and remove all the beer, two things that Homer love. It dose take long for Homer to go insane and Marge lock him up in freezer, when homer start to eat then number of horror Ioons such as Freddy, Jason, Pinhead and Mummy who drag me out which I did find really great.

Tale 2 Homer keeps getting hand stuck in toaster so he tires to fix but then keeps goes back time, he kills a fly and when comes back the world as changed but then he tries to fix but then he can't get is normal time.

It was odd story story they did have some good jokes but I wish Homer had happy ending, i wish ending staying in the Rich house, we would have love raining Dounts.

The next story Nigthmare cafeteria Kids are going missing school and school are serving some nice food for change named after some of the kids have gone missing, Lisa and Bart both run to Marge who know help at all. As they got back school they face it, will they make it out live.

I find this much more funny then Halloween 4, it some great funny jokes in this episode.
