People in horror movies do the darndest things, don't they? We've all had a "Don't go in there, you idiot!" moment or twelve while watching fright flicks. Horror sure does bring out the stupids.
This counter-intuitive behavior makes it seem like these folks are handing over their lives on a silver platter, so in honor of this weekend's "Evil Dead" let's celebrate the good, the bad and the dumber-than-a-bag-of-hammers of the genre. Appropriately enough, our first entry comes from that franchise. Get More »
If you just had lunch, you may want to quietly escort yourself off the internet right about now.
That's because it's time for the most unholy of mash-ups: the Ultimate Movie Vomit Mashup. Or, as we call it for short, the Throw-Up Mashup.
Featuring choice chunks from "Stand By Me," "The Exorcist," "Clueless" and many, many more, vomit enthusiasts may find it hard to keep their excitement down about this one...or their lunches.
Check out the mashup above, see if you can ID every scene, then yak to us about it in the comments or on Twitter!
"The Last Exorcism 2" hits theaters next Friday and if you're like us, you're probably thinking one thing: How can a movie called "The Last Exorcism" have a sequel? It's like the Hollywood equivalent of having 14 "Final Fantasy" games.
But the answer is simple: Exorcisms never really seem to work in movies. For over four decades, film fans have been going to the cineplex for one horror movie after another and the one thing you can pretty much always count on is the fact that when it comes time to try and exorcise a demon from a human host, that attempt will fail and fail miserably.

You like "Home Alone." Heck, you may even claim to love "Home Alone."
But do you love it enough to ink a tribute to Joe Pesci into your skin, permanently?
They say that beauty is skin-deep, but there's no adage for how deep fandom goes. These 25 hardcore fans of movies from, yes, "Home Alone" to "Black Swan" proudly display their devotion on their bodies in the form of intricate ink.
Scroll on to see, and tell us in the comments how you would pay body art tribute to your favorite flick.
1. 'The Dark Knight'
In 1973, director William Friedkin terrorized global audiences with his squirm-inducing vision of demonic possession, "The Exoricst."
Father Damien Karras' battle with the evil spirit of Pazuzu now continues on the small screen, thanks to the editing wizardry of Film School Rejects, who have re-assembled "The Exorcist" as if it were a cheesifying 1980's sitcom. Get More »
At this year's Cannes Film Festival, a steady stream of chatter swirled around "The Paperboy" due to a scene in which Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron's face.
"Dear Lord, why?" you might ask. Well, aside from the fact that an Oscar winner urinating on your head grants you thespian superpowers and cures migraines, the starlet's saintly spray also cured the searing pain of a jellyfish sting.
We're sure you're all now bursting to witness this degrading spectacle, and, thankfully, "The Paperboy" opens in select theaters this Friday. So while waiting to go — and you gotta go — let's revisit some timeless tinkles from tinseltown. Because while these golden moments might be listed as our Top 9, but they're all #1 in our book.

We predicted a year or so back that the release of "The Last Exorcism" would not actually be the last exorcism. How do we know? Please refer again to this article's title.
Everybody has their favorite Halloween snack -- candy corn, Twizzlers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups -- but according to the results of our ultimate Halloween poll, there's one food nobody will be eating this year: Pea soup.
The results are in and with almost 16 thousand votes, there's no doubt about it: "The Exorcist" has been named as the overwhelming choice for Scariest Movie of All Time, defeating runner-up "Paranormal Activity" by a nearly two-to-one margin. Get More »
Kane Hodder is a legend in the horror biz, with more on-screen kills than you could count. He also wore a hockey mask more than most Canadians do when he portrayed bloodthirsty murder machine Jason Voorhees in four "Friday the 13th" installments, a series record. (His personal favorite kill is the infamous "sleeping bag against a tree" scene.)
Recently Hodder has found a new avenue for his particular brand of personal expression as deformed maniac Victor Crowley in the "Hatchet" series. He will begin shooting "Hatchet 3" early next year, and, in his words, is "anxious to get back in that Victor makeup and kill some motherf***ers."
For all the nightmares he's given people over the years, there are a few fright flicks that have given Hodder the shivers as well. After reading through his terrific new autobiography "Unmasked: The True Life Story of The World’s Most Prolific Cinematic Killer," we asked the genial Hodder what his favorite scary movies are -- and he has some doozies.
