Whilst I have a lot of issues with the plot (Bender becomes a werecar and transforms into a car in a way that looks basically like magic. They could have easily gone all Transformers on us, but instead his hands just pop into rubber tyres. Futurama usually has less cartoon logic than this), I also love horror films and so I enjoy the pastiche of the genre on a guilty pleasure level. The first act spent in a haunted castle in particular.

It's also one of the funniest episodes of the first two seasons in my opinion, which helps to justify me forgiving problems I have with the story. Again, maybe I just find it funny because I love the films it's mocking, but it also has a lot of great geek humour (binary code being written on a wall in blood, only for it to be mirror writing).

It's not an all-time classic, but a very, very fun episode all the same.
