If It's Creepy, It's Gotta Be Funny!
2 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fifth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and it's everyone favorite part of the season: the annual Halloween episodes. This is the third horror anthology featuring the Simpsons and it's a dandy. It's a very funny spoof on popular culture such as the Twilight Zone, King Kong, and Night of the Living Dead. While the episode has a creepy tone to it, it does manage to be quite hilarious.

In this episode, "Treehouse of Horror III" Homer goes crazy when he buys an evil Krusty the Klown doll bent on killing him. Marge falls in love with a giant ape resembling Homer. Finally, Bart and Lisa raise the dead, thus creating havoc all over Springfield.

Overall, this is a very good episode. This may be my favorite Halloween episodes out of the first three. At least this time around, the pop culture spoofs were right on target. I cannot wait to see what Season 5 will bring for Halloween. I rate this episode 9/10.
