One of the few post-2000 episodes that's actually good.
5 February 2007 | by general-melchettSee all my reviews

The 21st century has ruined The Simpsons - especially in the past two years. But this is one of the episodes of the new millennium that is actually worthy of the good old days. It had me in stitches from start to finish - the "Wiz Kids" section alone was ten times better than most full-length episodes. Whether you want killer houses, evil fortune tellers or magic schools, this Treehouse of Horror is more than likely to score a direct hit in the net of happiness. I have found that this is one of the few episodes of the 2000s that I have been able to let out a large satisfying laugh at - not just a mild chuckle or, even worse, a flat-faced look of pity. And there's also big celebrities voicing this. The vomiting "frog" prince in Wiz Kids was my favourite part. 8/10
