Homer, Bart, and the rest of the Simpsons clan are set to be given a new look in the upcoming ’ Treehouse of Horror XXXIII.

The spooky special will see the beloved family of five transformed into anime as they parody famous thrillers.

According to the synopsis, the 33rd annual Treehouse of Horror will see Marge’s resentment take a monstrous form, while Lisa tries to save the planet through murder and Homer realises he’s not the man he thought he was.
