Intro - "The Sweets Hereafter": The Simpson family are all treats in a candy bowl. It was okay. (I definitely liked Bart as a Butterfinger, and Grandpa as Senior Mints.) I'm not sure if this was stop-motion or CGI.

The Exor-sis: A parody of The Exorcist. Pazuzu possesses Maggie and starts killing the guests at her parents' cocktail party. There were some good bits. I liked Homer's demonic version of "When Irish Eyes are Smiling," and the sight gags of all the toys and things in Maggie's room while he was singing. And stuff. Definitely a few giggles in this sketch.

Coralisa: A parody of Coraline. There's a gross holdover from the previous sketch (emetophobia warning!) Then Lisa follows Snowball the cat (who starts talking) through a weird tunnel, and into an alternate reality (which is stop-motion). For awhile, I thought it was mildly underwhelming, because it seemed to hurry through the movie's plot. But eventually it got more interesting.

Mmm... Homer: Cannibalism. Disturbing. Good title, though.

A couple days after watching the episode, I realized that Kang and Kodos weren't in it at all. That's just bizarre and wrong.
