Oscar-winning movie “Parasite” gets the “Treehouse of Horror” parody in the Season 33 of “The Simpsons’” annual Halloween episode. “Treehouse of Horror XXXII,” which also got the “Bambi,” “The Ring” and more, new episode airs Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
In the segment “Bong Joon Ho’s ‘This Side of Parasite,’” the Simpsons live in a squalid basement apartment but want to change their circumstances after Bart is selected as a tutor by a wealthy superstar Rainier Wolfcastle.
Finally, Bart arranges to have Homer hired as Wolfcastle’s new chauffeur, while Marge gets a gig as the housemaid, Lisa is hired as an art teacher and even baby Maggie lands a job as a groundskeeper. But when Wolfcastle goes on vacation and the Simpsons throw a party in the manor, they discover others have been secretly living in the house, too — Kirk and Luann, who are not happy that the Simpsons took their jobs — and a fight erupts between the “parasites.”
Other segments in the new “Treehouse of Horror” include a twist on Disney’s “Bambi” — just, well, a lot more gruesome. Meanwhile, in “Nightmare on Elm Tree,” trees take their revenge on the citizens of Springfield. Keep an eye out for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Little Shop of Horrors” and “The Wizard of Oz” references — as well as an actual guest voice from basketball player Tree Rollins.
In “Poetic Interlude,” a Vincent Price-style voice reads the children’s book “The Telltale Bart,” while Edward Gorey-style animation illustrates the tale. And in a parody of “The Ring,” the Springfield Elementary kids discover that anyone who watches a TikTok video will die in seven days. Lisa hatches a plan to stop TikTok from killing viewers.
