Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, 2001, Harry Potter, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Tron should consider themselves wildly flattered as they get the inimitable Simpsons skewering in this shockingly funny collection of four mostly classic "Treehouse of Horror" 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 mechanized 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 all screamingly funny treats. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Consists of the following episodes: In this annual trilogy of terror, Homer attempts to kill his family in "The Shinning," Homer tries to fix a toaster and winds up altering the fabric of time itself in "Time and Punishment," and Principal Skinner serves students for lunch in "Nightmare Cafeteria." In this Halloween-themed anthology, advertising icons go berserk in "Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores," Groundskeeper Willie invades the children's dreams in "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace," and Homer enters a 3-D world of computer animation in "Homer 3." This Simpson showcase features a terrifying look at Bart's evil twin in "The Thing and I," Lisa creating a miniature world in "The Genesis Tub," and aliens stealing the identities of Bill Clinton and Bob Dole in "Mr. Kang Goes To Washington." In "Hex and the City," a gypsy curses Homer, bringing misery to everyone he loves. In "House of Whacks," a computer (Pierce Brosnan) takes over the Simpson house and attempts to kill Homer for Marge's love. And in "Wiz Kids," Bart and Lisa are students at a school for wizards, where they foil the evil Lord Montymort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Idea, Strange execution... October 8, 2003
Format:DVD
I love Halloween and I love the Simpson's. You'd think this were nirvana. Unfortunately it's just another money-grab. Here's what I liked/disliked about this DVD;

LIKED;
-Simpson's, Halloween... enough said.
-Picture and sound are fine. Just like Cable.
-The price. If it cost any more I would have passed.
-The episodes they have are good ones.

DIS-LIKED;
-Why Tree House Episodes V, VI, VII and XII? Why not I, II, III and IV?
-Why not all of the Tree House Episodes on one, more expensive, DVD. I could not resist that!
-The Kang and Kodos "Bonus" is merely a montage of clips. No big deal.
-No extras.

Given these factors, it is easy to conclude that this is, indeed, a money-grab. If they released a real Tree House of Horror DVD With all the episodes, I'd jump on that like a fly on stink, at just about any price!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of Halloween Episodes June 30, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD last year on ebay. I had to get the Region2 version since it was the only one available at the time.

Tree house of Horror V - In this annual trilogy of terror Homer attempts to kill his family in "The Shining." Homer tries to fix a toaster and winds up altering the fabric of time itself in "Time and Punishment." Principal Skinner serves students for lunch in "Nightmare Cafeteria"
Tree house of Horror VI - In this Halloween style anthology, advertising icons go berserk in "Attack of the 50 Foot eyesores". Groundskeeper Willie invades the children's dreams in "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace". Homer enters a 3-D world of computer animation in "Homer(3)"
Tree house of Horror VII - This Simpsons showcase features a terrifying look at Bart's evil twin in "The Thing and I." Lisa creating a miniature world in "The Genesis Tub" and aliens stealing the identities of Bill Clinton and Bob Dole in "Mr Kang Goes To Washington"
Tree house of Horror XII - In "Hex & The City", a gypsy curses Homer, bringing misery to everyone he loves. In "House of Whacks" a computer (Pierce Brosnan) takes over the Simpson house and attempts to kill Homer for Marge's love. And in "Wiz Kids", Bart and Lisa are students of a school for wizards, where they foil the evil Lord Montymort

Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I smell a rat... I mean, a pigeon-rat! September 2, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
You can't beat the price and considering the SLOW release schedule of the complete seasons, you could be forgiven for grabbing this disc to tide you...HOWEVER would it have been too much to include Treehouse #3 and #4 (two of the best of the series)?
Also...be advised that while the DVD case pictures Mr. Burns as Dracula, that episode (from Treehouse #4) IS NOT included with this disc. What's the big idea?

5.0 out of 5 stars It isn't Halloween until the Simpsons say so! October 31, 2003
Format:DVD
The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" is a Halloween staple. It is the highlight of my Halloween celebration. I look forward to the new edition each year, and I cherish the past episodes. So, naturally, I'm happy that this collection has been made available. (I bought two copies: one for me, and a present for my friend.) This compilation includes four episodes. Each episode contains three mini-episodes:
Treehouse of Horror V
"The Shinning," a tribute to the horror classic. "Time and Punishment," where Homer time travels via a toaster. "Nightmare Cafeteria," where school staff perfects the art of serving the student body.
Treehouse of Horror VI
"Attack of the 50 Foot Eyesores," where advertisements have their revenge. "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace" finds Groundskeeper Willie as a Freddie-type. "Homer3" has Homer visiting the mysterious third dimension.
Treehouse of Horror VII
"The Thing and I" introduces us to Bart's long lost evil twin. "The Genesis Tub" casts Lisa as a creator of a tiny little world. "Mr. Kang Goes to Washington" has aliens taking on the form of Bob Dole and Bill Clinton, just in time for elections!
Treehouse of Horror XII
"Hex and the City" has a gypsy cursing Homer and everyone he loves. "House of Whacks" puts the Simpsons in a computerized home. "Wiz Kids" is a tribute to the first Harry Potter movie.
As others have noted, the setup page of this DVD package is very slow. Actually, it takes about three seconds for the selection to take place. So, it's not that slow really, just in comparison to what we're used to with DVDs. But something that I think makes it worth the few seconds wait is the fact that many scenes that have been deleted from the syndication versions of these episodes have been restored for this DVD compilation.

good horror that's pg or pg13?
Well if you can take large amounts of swearing, specifically f***, Blair Witch Project is a great horror film. It doesn't have nude/sex scenes or violent slashing with buckets of blood or limbs flying everywhere or any of that. It's a point of view movie that doesn't let the viewer know what's... Read More
