Whether you love or hate the series as a whole, it’s hard to deny that The Simpsons is at its best each year with the annual “Treehouse of Horror” episodes. Sure, series all over the TV map celebrate Halloween in one way or another, but no one has ever been truer to the season than Matt “Bat” Groening and the Simpsons clan have been for the past 25 years. This year’s episode looks to be a special treat, as the Simpsons are haunted by themselves, or at least by the Simpson family as they were originally designed for The Tracey Ullman Show, in a parody of 2001’s The Others, while another segment will spoof A Clockwork Orange.

Thus, we thought it would be a fun time to look back and celebrate some of the best movie parodies that The Simpsons has given us over the years with its “Treehouse of Horror” episodes. Maybe you guys got to relive them all during the epic FXX marathon, or maybe you haven’t seen them in years. In the end, the biggest question is, “Why don’t Kang and Kodos have their own anthology series yet?” Enjoy.

Like some future segments, “Bad Dream House” is basically just the Evergreen Terrace home becoming a central hub where the family are manipulated into doing terrible things to each other, though the house itself is the evil entity here. I like to think that the Simpson family members secretly entertain such violent muses on a day to day basis, but this is all due to the house being situated on an ancient Native American burial ground – one where Geronimo and Not So Crazy Horse are interred. The family spends a few minutes trying to murder each other while the house threatens them with swollen stomachs and writhing, boiling intestines. The Amityville Horror is also an inspiration behind this segment, with the bleeding walls and all, and other movies like Ghostbusters and The Exorcist get visual gags. This is the one that started it all, and it's still a classic nearly 24 years later.
