THE EXORCIST Director William Friedkin is Coming To THE SIMPSONS' "Treehouse of Horror XXVIII"
One of the things I look forward to most during the Halloween season is watching The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" special. It's just something that has become a tradition. I can't even imagine Halloween without out it! Hell, I grew up with The Simpsons! That family has been in my life since I was 11-years-old!
I've got some cool news regarding the upcoming "Treehouse of Horror XXVIII" that all you hardcore horror fans will appreciate. According to TV Line, William Friedkin, the director of the classic 1973 horror film The Exorcist, will lend his voice to a character in the special!
Friedkin will play Dr. Kenneth Humphries in a chapter titled “MMM… Homer,” which finds Homer cannibalizing himself after he runs out of food while Marge and the kids are away from home. We can’t say for sure how Dr. Humphries will factor into Homer’s predicament, but we hope he’ll offer some much-needed medical advice — perhaps something along the lines of, “Stop eating yourself!”
That sounds like a hilarious segment! It was also announced that Ben Daniels, who plays Father Marcus on Fox’s Exorcist series, will provide the voice of a priest in the upcoming Halloween special in a segment titled "Exor-sis."
It seems like the "Treehouse of Horror" specials aren't as hardcore or crazy as they used to be, but they're still fun to watch! "Treehouse of Horror XXVIII" will air Sunday, October 22nd.
