In this year's tricky triptych of terror, Bart presents three Halloween treats based on paintings in the "Fright Gallery." In the first story, Homer sells his soul to the devil (played by Ned Flanders) for a doughnut. When the devil wants to uphold Homer's side of the bargain, it's up to Marge and Lisa to argue why Homer's soul shouldn't be sucked into hell for all eternity. In the second installment, Bart has a nightmare about the school bus crashing that might just be coming true the next day during his commute. Bart spies a goblin on the side of the bus that could cause a crash, but no one believes him until it may be too late. And finally, Mr. Burns invites the Simpson family over to his castle for dinner where he bites Bart, turning him into a vampire. As Bart and his newly minted vampire friends wreak havoc, Lisa enlists Homer to kill Mr. Burns, the head vampire. When Homer drives a stake through Burns' heart (after some near misses and some outright bad aim), Lisa realizes that Burns wasn't the head vampire and that there's still the mother of all bloodsuckers to dispatch.
