* BigDamnHeroes: Parodied as Rainer Wolfcastle comes in, gunning down Munchers and tells the family to come with him if they want to live. He promptly gets overwhelmed and eaten, leading Homer to quip [[TakeThat "Another politician who can't keep his promises"]]. Apu plays this more or less straight.

''Dial M for Murder or Press # To Return to the Main Menu'' features Lisa and Bart in a send-up of classic Hitchcock films, particularly ''Film/{{Strangers On a Train}}''. Bart promises to deal with Miss Hoover via "criss-cross" for picking another student over her in a National Reading Roundup if Lisa will handle Mrs. Krabappel. Believing this simply means pranking her, Lisa goes through with it only to discover that Bart meant murder, showing her the head of the decapitated Miss Hoover. He attempts to pressure her into upholding her end of the criss-cross.

''Don't Have a Cow, Mankind'', a bizarre ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater'' meets ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'' tale, centers on the disastrous unveiling Krusty's newest burger made from mad cow beef. It causes all who eat it to become murderous zombies called "Munchers". The Simpsons barricade themselves but Bart escapes to get a Krusty burger, leading to the discovery that he is immune to the virus. Prompted by Dr. Hibbert, they make for the safe zone to get Bart, the "Chosen One", to help reverse the apocalypse.

''There's No Business Like Moe Business'' takes an interesting route, presenting the final tale of terror as an AffectionateParody of musicals like ''SweeneyTodd''. Moe, wanting to win over Marge, goes down to fix his dispensing equipment when Homer falls atop it, impaled and bleeding into it. Moe discovers that his beer becomes a much better brew when mixed with Homer's blood and acts to win over Marge who loves the new mix.

** Bart in the same segment, is starving (he refuses to eat the large amount of fresh fruit and vegetables they have) so he goes outside when he spots an uneaten Krusty Burger, one he knows full well is made of meat that turns people into zombies. The boy risked his life and his families lives because he would rather eat a month old toxic burger than fresh fruit. Fortunately he just so happens to be immune.
