Amazing intro, terrible episode
8 October 2013 | by Bigg_BadSee all my reviews

The intro directed by guillermo del toro is amazing, it really captures the feeling of halloween and the best Treehouse of horror episodes. What I really want is a full length episode of this quality.

That is not the case how ever, all three segments are boring, with the first being the best and most original, the second is horrible and is too much of a rip-off of a previous episode, the third is just boring.

I really miss when the Treehouse of Horror specials were centered around classic horror, like ghosts, vampires, zombies and such and I realize it's hard to keep it interesting if you just reuse the same ideas over and over, but when it's a halloween special I just think it should have a scary theme and there are still plenty of great horror movies to take inspiration from.
