Wonderfully Weird, as We've come to Expect,
18 September 2018 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Treehouse of Horror XXVIII is a terrific Simpsons episode with three very well developed segments and a plethora of brilliant moments. I can gladly say there is no bad segment this time around, the past few years there tends to be at least one bland one in the three, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of these. The Coraline parody was particularly ambitious, I loved the mesh of the two animation styles, it was a really joy to watch.

The weakest of the three was definitely Maggie getting possessed, while I did still have fun, it offered nothing new or original in terms of Exorcist parodies.

I also loved the third story, probably one of the weirdest THOH segments the show has ever done, as Homer takes up a new diet of eating himself. It is certainly not for the faint hearted, but I really admire how far hey went this season.

A very bold Treehouse. Fun, enjoyable, weird, and at times quite disgusting, Treehouse of Horror XXVIII was great and took some real risks.

Maggie gets possessed, Lisa discovers a portal to a new world, and Homer begins a strange new diet.
