This is, by far, the best Treehouse of Horror episode ever. I mean, the sixth season of the Simpsons was truly amazing, definitely the best season, so the sixth season of course has the best Treehouse of Horror episode. This episode also features my favorite segment of all time, the Shinning. It is obviously a parody of the Shining, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. The Shinning is very hilarious, but at the same time it is the scariest segment of all time. Who doesn't like a good scare?
Here is the plot of the first segment, the Shinning. Like I said before, it is pretty much a parody of the Shining. The family has to take care of Mr. Burns's mansion. Burns and Smithers take all the beer supply and cut the cable. Basically there is no television or beer. That is not a good sign for Homer. He goes insane because he can not handle no beer or TV. Also, a spirit Moe tells him if he kills his family he'll give him a beer. Luckily, Lisa finds a hand-held TV in the snow and Homer's urge to kill fades, but the family freezes and are forced to watch the Tony Awards.
In the second segment Homer breaks the toaster. He rebuilds it and puts a piece of toast in. It takes him back in time. He kills something and the future is totally different. He keeps in going back in time until he finally gets a nice future, the only problem is that humans have snake-like tongues.
In the third segment the teachers become cannibals after Principal Skinner tasted Jimbo with sauce on him. The teachers then give students detention whenever they move. When they are sent to detention they are eaten. Bart, Lisa, and Milhouse escape but are grounded up by a blender. Then it all turns out to be Bart's dream. The family then sings when they are turned inside out by a fog.
Overall, this is the most sick, disturbing Treehouse of Horror ever. It is very gory and bloody and should not be viewed by young children. Really listen to Marge's disclaimer at the beginning of the episode this time. She is serious. Anyway, the second segment I did not really like as much as the first segment or third segment, but it is still a fantastic segment. Plus, it has a great line said by Maggie. This is a spectacular episode throughout.
