It isn’t discussed at lot here at Left Hand Horror, but I’m a huge fan of The Simpsons and I have been since day one. How big? I bought every single figure and playset from the iconic Playmates Simpsons toy line, literally hundreds of figures. Imagine my excitement to learn one of my favorite directors, horror or otherwise, is taking part in the annual Treehouse of Horror 24. Sploosh for sure.
I almost fell over when I read the FOX press release this morning. Check this out.
The opener of the 24th annual “Treehouse of Horror” is from Guillermo del Toro and features monsters and classic characters from horror films throughout history. In “Oh The Places You’ll D’oh,” the first of three spine-tingling stories, Homer rides around Springfield wreaking havoc as “The Fat in The Hat” in a rhyming Dr. Seuss-ian tale. In “Dead and Shoulders,” Bart is beheaded during a kite accident, his head is attached to Lisa’s body and they must live together as one. The final terrifying tale, “Freaks no Geeks,” features Mr. Burns’ traveling circus, The Burnsum and Bailey Circus, which has stopped in Springfieldland in the 1930s. Trapeze artist Marge and Strong Man Homer are performers and things go awry when circus freak Moe starts to make advances towards Marge in the all-new “Treehouse of Horror XXIV” episode of The Simpsons” airing Sunday, Oct. 6 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
I have faith The Simpsons can get past all their pop culture parody episodes from the last few seasons and deliver a strong, old school episode this year. This is exciting!
DON’T MIND IF I DO!!!
