Last night, the long-running animated series "The Simpsons" debuted their latest annual Treehouse of Horror episode in the spirit of the Halloween season. These are always the most fun episodes of the year, especially for a show that many have fallen away from over the years, and last night was no exception. Even if you're not a fan of the show, if you're a horror fan, you'll have a hard time resisting this episode as one of the segments features a trippy, awesome tribute to the late, great Stanley Kubrick. And the good news is that you have the next week to check out this entire episode online for free (and legally too). Watch below!
If you need anymore convincing that this is a fun episode, here's some stills (via Vulture):
Here's the full Treehouse of Horror episode of "The Simpsons" honoring Stanley Kubrick (via Hulu):
The episode also features an awesome segment where we get to see The Simpsons family animated in a variety of familiar styles including claymation and anime, not to mention homages to other cartoons like "Adventure Time," "South Park" and "Bob's Burgers." You can check out that small tidbit right here if watching the entire episode just seems too daunting. Also, if you can't get enough of "The Simpsons" and their special Treehouse of Horror episodes, the FXX network is running a 12-hour marathon of every single one (except for last night's installment) beginning this Sunday, October 26th, at 12pm ET/PT. Cool?
