    My favorite was when Tom Savini was signing at the comic store.

    The best was The Shinning, which of course referenced Poltergeist. (Sorry... I meant, Stanley Kubrick's Poltergeist.) (;))

    As for my personal favorite... It's The Shinning.

    But... there are so many great ones. I'd say the second best is the Bram Stoker's Dracula spoof in the 4th "Treehouse of Horror"; then, of course, "Dial 'Z' for Zombies" has the best joke. ("Is this the end of Zombie Shakespeare?") The second best joke has to be every line out of Mr. Burns' mouth in the Frankenstein spoof at the end of "Treehouse of Terror II." Especially:



    (SpongeBob SquarePants ripped that ^ off so hard when they did the short where SpongeBob and Mr. Krabbs think they killed the health inspector.)

    Also, I think the giant killer billboard short is one of the most interesting and wildest ideas they ever had. (Unless that is from a movie I've never heard of.)

    Also, I was sure in the Dracula spoof, the bit where Bart and Milhouse are floating outside Lisa's window trying to entrance her into letting them in, I thought it was a reference of Salem's Lot. But, in the commentary they said it was from The Lost Boys.
