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...

 Killer Careers Header

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!

Why are clowns so terrifying? Is it the blood-red lips? Or the perpetually-smiling mouths? Maybe they terrified us as children, like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

Perfect Organism: The Alien from 1979-1997 [Infographic]

The Alien Evolution Infographic

Watching the movies in the Alien franchise, it’s easy to forget that the titular monster is actually a man in a suit. The slick, onyx-colored skin of the Xenomorph, the spindly, whip-like limbs, the dome-shaped head—these features seem so inhuman that it’s hard to imagine the creature being anything but another species from an unknown planet. However, this creature was man-made, dreamt up in industrial nightmare by artist H.R. Giger. Over the course of the main four films in the series, Giger and fellow designers tweaked and modified the Xenomorph, evolving the creature little-by-little. This infographic shows you the changes made in each film, from its original appearance in 1979 through Alien: Resurrection in 1997.

Who Ya Gonna Call?: The Evolution of the Ghostbusters Costumes [Infographic]

Summer of 2016 is bringing us a reboot of the popular Ghostbusters franchise, marking a 27-year gap between films. Since Ghostbusters became a cultural phenomenon in the 80s, talks of a third movie had been in the works shortly after the release of Ghostbusters II in the 90s. Dan Aykroyd, the driving force behind the franchise, initially pitched a third installment, but the studio had turned it down due to it's outrageous $150 million budget. For perspective, the 2016 release Ghostbusters has reported to have a budget of $154 million, so the budget for Aykroyd's movie adjusted for inflation would be around $275 million today! Throughout most of the past decade, Ghostbusters III had been in various forms of development with scripts being drafted and Aykroyd continually providing updates on the progress. However, the movie was ultimately scrapped in favor of the upcoming...
