The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror collection proves that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, 2001, Harry Potter, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Tron get the inimitable Simpsons skewering in this shockingly funny collection of four mostly classic episodes. Best is "V" in which no TV and no beer make Homer go crazy in "The Shinning" ("You mean The Shining", Bart corrects. "Shh, you want to get sued?" Homer reprimands him). "VI" contains the ambitious, computer-animated "Homer3". "VII" features aliens Kang and Hados's finest quarter half-hour as they assume the identities of Bill Clinton and Bob Dole. "XII" boasts the star power of Pierce Brosnan as the voice of a mechanised house that falls in love with Marge and lures Homer to his apparent death with "unexplained bacon". For Halloween and beyond, this crypt-kicking collection is full of screamingly funny treats. --Donald Liebenson

3.0 out of 5 stars hmm 3 Nov 2002
I was really excited to see that fox had brought out a halloween special compilation, I am a really big fan of the Simpsons and always look forward to the halloween specials.
However I think it could have been better thought out, instead of slapping a half hearted DVD together for the holidays. The episodes are a randon pick from about 13 specials to date. The episodes chosen aren't the best halloween ones either. Apart from the episodes there is a montage of Kang and Kodos, the cycloptic aliens who always make an apperance in the halloween episodes. This montage is pointless and the jokes make no sense out of context. A waste of 3 minutes.
On the plus side, the episodes(5, 6, 9, 12) do contain a few scenes that were edited out of the original TV release episodes due to bad taste and time restrictions. As for the episodes themselves, they're pretty good, but they could have chosen better episodes for this collection. For simpsons fans only.

When it comes to Halloween episodes the big three are "Roseanne," "The Simpsons" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (although "BtVS" was always an every other year deal). You would think that the producers of these shows would have figured out that offering an alternative to splatter flicks as what to watch on October 31st that video/DVD packages of classic Halloween episodes would be an obvious choice. But you have to pick up seasons 2 and 4 (and wait for 6) of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," catch "Roseanne" in syndication, and deal with this limited offering from "The Simpsons." It is not often that you come across a DVD that could have increased its average rating by a star if it just had "Volume 1" as part of the title.
Actually, this really should be "Volume 2" of "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror," because it offers "Treehouse of Horror" V, VI, VII and XII. Whatever the joke is here, I am clearly missing out on it. Why not V, VI, VII and VIII? For that matter why not I, II, III and IV? Is it because the first three seasons of the Simpsons are out on DVD? It is because Roman numerals confused the people making the decisions? To add insult to injury, these are bare boned discs. No commentaries, no features, no animated menus, just a some clips of Kang and Kodos (e.g., Kang on Jerry Springer). The episodes are great, but the bad faith effort here loses a star.
"Treehouse of Horror V" offers a take off on "The Shining," Homer traveling through time with the aid of a toaster in "Time and Punishment," and the school staff doing the Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett bit with the students in "Nightmare Cafeteria.

I am a great fan of The Simpsons 'Treehouse of Horror' specials, and picked up this DVD at a relatively cheap cost. I guess that this collection was intended to appeal to the causal fan, with four episodes available at a budget price. Indeed, I have recently seen this collection on sale in supermarkets and bargain shops leading up to Halloween. For the bigger Simpsons enthusiast though, this DVD will disappoint.

More episodes could have included on the disc, or it could at least have been kept sequential. I was disappointed that the first 'Treehouse' wasn't included, but the ones that were, despite being perhaps slightly random choices, are very good: 'Treehouse of Horror V' (1994), Treehouse of Horror VI' (1995), 'Treehouse of Horror VII' (1996), and 'Treehouse of Horror XII' (2001).

For anyone who hasn't seen any 'Treehouse of Horror' episodes, they contain three mini-stories in one, and are very entertaining takes of famous horror films. In fact, a lot of those stories could have billed as 'A Simpsons' Tribute To Stephen King'. The first episode parodies 'The Shining', with Homer, away from home with no television or beer, attempting to murder his family. In V1', Homer finds himself trapped in a three dimensional world and becomes 3D computer-generated character, the animation is brilliant and must have been something at the time, it's certainly unique to the show.

In all, I really enjoy these Simpsons Halloween classics, they are very funny and it's always good to see the characters in different situations and scenarios that we are used to seeing them in. The film, television and cultural references come at you fast, and these four episodes are a solid reminder of how clever and entertaining the show really is. I have to say though, we are still waiting for a definitive set of 'Treehouse of Horror', and whilst this is a good introduction, it is far from perfect.

This movie is both scary and hilarious!!!
i love the way Homer goes 'Doh'. He also says 'why you little*****' classic. I loe the way Lisa gets her own back on Bartand I do think that Bart and Lisa should get to be more friendly as a brother and sister. They are always fighting. Maggie is so cute in this one - she is just a baby. I love her. Marg seems to get angry with homer for what he does behind her back. Itt is all good stuff!!!
