Bart meets a reclusive B-movie director whose collection of horror, science fiction, and Radioactive Man is the envy of every hobbyist in Springfield. When the director announces a contest to give away his massive collection, every geek, nerd, and dweeb in town will do anything to win. Then, Homer pits himself against an exasperating and pesky pest…and this time it’s not Bart! And, witness the reign of terror of Springfield’s super villain Doctor Colossus! Finally, a school field trip goes awry when Bart, Milhouse, and Martin end up on a runaway train.
