A spirit moves books and flies them at Lisa, strangles Bart with a lamp wire, a voice tells them to get out however, Homer suggests that they sleep on it. During the night however the voice causes Homer, Bart, Lisa and Maggie to try and kill their family with an axe and knifes. Marge tells the house that they'll have to live together so it'll have to get used to it. Exploring the options, it self-destructs.
HUNGRY ARE THE DAMNED: Bart tells another story featuring Kang and Kodos who abduct the Simpsons, and continually makes them eat. Taking them to Rigel 4 where they will be given a welcoming banquet as guests of honour.
