Alien Heights Infographic

Ever wonder how your favorite alien species from pop culture stack up against each other? We like to imagine just what would go down if they would happen to cross franchises and go toe-to-toe with a species from another movie or TV series. Like, what would happen if Alf waltzed onto the set of Sesame Street and started sizing up Gonzo? (Hint: Alf has the height advantage.) Or what if old school sci-fi aliens faced off, like The Man from Planet X versus the mutant from This Island Earth? We're not sure what would be the bigger advantage, the glass helmet or super-sized brain!? And when it comes to the action packed sci-fi on the big screen, there's all kinds of heavy duty - and terrifying - creatures that could ruin anyone's day. The arachnid bugs from Starship Troopers, the terrifying xenomorphs from Alien, the rancor from Return of the Jedi, or even the the straight up meanies from ID4... well, we hope we never come to face to face with something the likes of them.

Freddy Krueger Infographic

Take a moment to relax. Find a nice, quiet room, and lay down in the dark. Close your eyes. Feel yourself drifting off to sleep… Suddenly, you see a figure off in the distance. The vision is hazy at first, but then he slowly rises into focus. You can see a ragged striped sweater on a tall lurching body. An old brown hat with a wide brim. A sharp ray of light flickers: he has blades coming from his sleeve, like every finger is a knife. Burnt, disfigured skin glistens in the moonlight. Finally, the man of your dreams fully appears in front of you: it’s Freddy Krueger. One of the most infamous movie villains of all time came into the pop culture lexicon in 1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street and throughout the 9-film franchise, Krueger’s look changed bit-by-bit, burn-by-burn, and other such b-words that Freddy is well-known for spouting. We’ve created this infographic showing the changes, as well as Krueger’s kill count per film and interesting facts about each movie. See for yourself, but whatever you do… don’t fall asleep.

DIY Negan Costume: A Walking Dead Halloween Tutorial

Negan is a brutal but charismatic antagonist in both the comic book and television series versions of The Walking Dead. The character was first introduced in July 2012 in the comic books–issue #100–as leader of the Washington, D.C. bandit group The Saviors. He has been a popular recurring character ever since. In April 2015, Negan appeared in the final episode of season six of the television series. This was hyped since the mid-season break, along with the fact that he would kill one of the protagonists. Our DIY costume and makeup guide is based on Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s performance in the television series, as he threatens the protagonists with Lucille, his bat wrapped with barbed wire.

The Simpsons has been around a long, long time (before some of its viewers were even born!) and yet, thanks to the genius writers, animators, and voice actors, it remains one of the funniest things we've ever seen, or will likely ever see. You could chock it up to luck, timing, whatever sort of grace the TV gods have to bestow once a generation, but the truth is that the Simpsons just hit everything right. What happens when you lock a bunch of Harvard comedy writers in a room together? The result is The Simpsons. With guys like Conan O'Brien and John Schwartzwelder writing gags all day, it's no wonder that 90% of our daily references come from the show. And if you're a fan, now that it's Halloween season, you know that means 90% of your Halloween references come from the classic annual Treehouse of Horror episodes.

There are so many to choose from; we had verbal battles over this, but for the most part we had a lot of fun remembering (and quoting) our favorite moments from the show to come up with this list. Nobody was turned into a sloppy joe, but there were casualties. There could only be ten, so one of your favorites might not be on here, but we bet at least one of them is... sorry, it's like choosing children! You get it though. You're a fan, too. Now, picture if you will, these macabre (and hilarious) Treehouse of Horror minimalist posters...

Psst. Come closer. We want to fill you in on a little dirty secret of ours: we are completely obsessed with horror movies. Slasher flicks, zombie films, science fiction thrillers, and supernatural major motion pictures; we bloody love 'em all! Bring on all the gore, mangled monsters, blood-curdling shrieks, and the perpetual paranormal hauntings because we can handle it. Sure, we watch most horror movies through spliced fingers while shielding our eyes, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Seriously. There's something about being immobilized with fear that makes us feel so...alive.

So, being the self-confessed creepy movie connoisseurs that we are, we couldn't help but notice one particular startling trend: whoa, there are so many baby-faced Hollywood A-listers popping up in our favorite old-school scary movies. Before these big league stars made the big bucks, they could be seen dodging flesh-eating furballs and running from chainsaw-wielding psychopaths. Watching these cinema hall of famers being hacked to bits by some classic fictional killers makes us giddy with delight, so we've decided to expose all of the skeletons hiding in their horror movie closets. Our infographic is one force to be reckoned with that these stars won't be able to run away from!
