Really good Halloween Episoed
11 February 2010 | by atinderSee all my reviews

Bart and other member of The Simpsons family host 3 scary Halloween tales based on some paintings.

The first story is called The Devil and Homer

Homer is at work said to himself he sell his soul for donuts only for The Devil to turn up as Flanders who gives homer the donuts, while a sleep homer as the last part of the donuts as sent to hell for night until the trial.

There had some really funny moment, I really liked the idea of Flanders being the Devil and while Homer is in hell, he add all the Donuts was really funny too.

The next story we see Bart wake up after having nightmare dying on the school bus and Bart feels strange as it getting on the Bus to school and looks out window he sees a GremLin on the side of the bus and no believes him and end up going a bit mad.

I didn't like this story that much, I did find it that funny, but I did enjoy the part when Flanders picked it up was little funny.

Next story which is Bart Simpson's Dracula Mr Burns invites The Simpsons to dinner after closing a deal to buy blood bank., Lisa think Mr burns is vampire, while Mr burns bites Bart.

Later that night Lisa sees Bart and his friends floating outside his window and his about Bite Lisa that when Homer walks find out Bart is the vampire, Lisa tells Homer to kill Mr Burns, As Homer dose, but was Mr Burns the really leader? There is a really good twist to that story , don't want to ruin it.

This great spoof from Bram stoker's Dracula, I find it really funny
