G-G Ghost D-D-Dad: 8/10; Scary Tales Can Come True: 7/10; Night of the Dolphin: 10/10
6 January 2010 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

I saw this Halloween special on DVD and with the deleted scenes.

The first story of the special doesn't feel that fresh but still is pretty funny. It has Homer and Marge reading their horoscope just to find bad news: Homer will die and Marge's husband will die. The best part of this story is definitely when we all realize that this horoscope is something to trust in, however my favourite of these bits was the one that eventually was deleted! Every bit is funny but not as when Homer, after finally dying thanks to a broccoli (!), thinks he just tricked death, and in consequence the horoscope, yet again! It goes a little too predictable once Homer get to the gates of heaven, but nevertheless that very last scene is both very funny and perfect for a Halloween special.

The second tale is set in a totally not Halloween-horrifying place: the fairy tales. Yet, and of course, there's horror, and especially for Bart and Lisa since they, and due to the economic problems of their parents, will have to face the place where some time ago their brothers died (and let's not forget Maggie, she will be just waiting the best bidder!). Good stuff, especially this whole tale of the Three Bears… poor, poor Goldilocks! And that "blood under the door" detail, as expected as darn cool and perfect!

The final part is my favourite. It's basically Free Willy with results that will make the liberator, certainly in this case Lisa, regret of making Snorky a free dolphin. Homer screaming "we've wiped out entire species before, we can do it again!" gives you hope that they can beat the s*** out of those apparently innocent but freakin' violent (and hilarious! You have to love Snorky making his pals laugh!) creatures (that are fighting to gain back their original territory), we are with Homer and Bart and the rest but these Hitchcockian dolphins…
