Sometimes, 'Treehouse Of Horror' segments are more than just funny, but truly nightmarish.
The Simpsons' annual "Treehouse Of Horror" Halloween special has been a holiday tradition for 25 years.
Mostly taking their inspiration from sci-fi and horror classics, "Treehouse Of Horror" has created some of the funniest and most well-crafted parodies of all time. Occasionally, however, the show manages to write a segment that is really, legitimately creepy.

To really get into the spooky spirit, here are 12 truly scary "Treehouse Of Horror" stories to give you nightmares this Halloween.

Exclusive: Radar Pictures has snapped up spec script Midnight from screenwriters Travis Baker and Richard Tanne. The horror-thriller described as “I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Prisoners” centers on a small-town mayor’s daughter who goes missing and the detectives, family and friends who discover she’s just the latest in the town’s dark history of mystery and murder. Baker and Tanne will serve as exec producers on Midnight, which Radar’s Ted Field and Mike Weber will produce and Alexandra Eason will co-produce.
Longtime pals and collaborators Baker and Tanne started out in horror working on Eli Roth’s Hostel before co-writing series Cinema Cool. They teamed up last year on Halloween-set slasher Mischief Night, which Baker wrote and directed, Tanne produced and Lionsgate released. Their indie comedy Worst Friends was acquired by Level 33 this summer and releases on November 4. The duo also has their sword-and-sandal »

Sitcoms have given us so much - laughs, convoluted misunderstandings and even life lessons. But on occasion, they also broke from the typical formula and gave us a few scares. Sometimes they did it to celebrate Halloween. Sometimes they just did it to freak out children in the audience who might not be in on the joke. Here, then, are a handful of the oddball episodes of classic sitcoms that you can watch right now online - and that you might not believe actually aired until you see them for yourself. The Facts of Life, "The Seven Little Indians" Aired: »

5. Sissy Spacek – Carrie (1976)
Sissy Spacek gave a career-defining performance in the 1976 horror classic Carrie, playing a shy teen, shunned by peers and sheltered by her overprotective mother who unleashes terror on her town when she is pushed too far at her senior prom.
We've got to give it up for Neve Campbell, who was instrumental in bringing back the modern slasher in the horror satire Scream. The franchise brought on a few more dames of horror – like Rose McGowan and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Video: 5 Stars who Started in Horror Movies
After just recently sharing an adorable story about how he and ex-wife Reese Witherspoon explained their cult classic, super sexy film Cruel Intentions to their kids, the actor is now saying that most of his movies, he wouldn't even watch.
"I've made 30-plus films over 20 years," the 40-year-old actor tells the Los Angeles Times via Skype. "And in my opinion, five of them are good."
Further explaining the plight of an actor, Phillippe adds, "So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you're an actor for hire."
In addition to Cruel Intentions, Phillippe's critically acclaimed films include the Oscar-winning movie Crash, [link »
Update: The list has been amended to include the three segments from "Treehouse of Horror Xxv." That's right: In honor of The Simpsons' 25th (!) annual Halloween special, EW didn't just rank the top 25 "Treehouse of Horror" segments. We took things a step further by ranking every single "Treehouse" segment ever seen on the show—and you'll find entries 72 through 26 in the list below. Even when longtime fans sniff that The Simpsons' Golden Age is long past, they can agree that late-period Simpsons Halloween shows still pack a punch. Why? Because "Treehouse" segments give the series' writers a break »

Ryan Phillippe’s got a lengthy resume as an actor, but be on the lookout for more directing credits from him because while working on his feature directorial debut, he found the creative control addicting. Phillippe wrote, directed, produced and also stars in Catch Hell as Reagan Pearce, a Hollywood actor who’s developed a bit of a reputation and can’t land the big gigs anymore. While on an independent film shoot in Shreveport, Louisiana, Reagan hops in a van to head off to set, but winds up being kidnapped by his drivers instead. With Catch Hell hitting theaters in Los Angeles and New York on October 10th, I got the opportunity to sit down with Phillippe to run through the process of getting his first directorial endeavor going. You’d think someone with Philippe’s star power would be able to get the project off the ground in an instant, »

Hewitt, now on 'Criminal Minds,' flashes back to 'Party Of Five' and 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' reboot.
Jennifer Love Hewitt has been acting since she was a child appearing in TV commercials and Disney Channel's Kids Incorporated and shot to fame as Sarah Merrin on the popular teen drama Party of Five nearly 20 years ago.
"It's crazy!" she said, of the Fox series' milestone anniversary. "I feel very old all of a sudden."
Video- 'Party of Five' Turns 20!
The young star was only 16-years-old when Party of Five premiered in 1995 and told us that working on the show was a "really amazing time" in her life.
"I think it was very helpful for me as a teenager because I was so angsty on the show that I never, I was too tired by the time I got home to actually do any of that stuff in real life so »

Bourne: Matt Damon is returning to the Bourne series under the direction of Paul Greengrass. The two previously worked together on 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum (pictured above), as well as 2010's non-Bourne action drama Green Zone. Reportedly, the new project is targeting July 26, 2016 for release, which would delay the next planned Boune offshoot starring Jeremy Renner, which will be directed by Justin Lin. [Deadline] I Know What You Did Last Summer: It's been 17 years since Kevin Williamson (Scream) adapted Lois Duncan's thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer for the big screen, and so Sony has decided the time is right for a reboot. The studio has tapped Mike Flanagan (Oculus) to write a new script with his...

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.
Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.
Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

No one has any lingering affection for I Know What You Did Last Summer, right? No? Great. Just making sure no one’s feelings will be crushed by the announcement that Sony has an Ikwydls reboot fast-tracked for 2016. The following details come by way of Deadline: Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Oculus) will script the reboot, which will “again” take its inspiration from the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan. “Again” should really be up for debate, because it’s not like the original film was a slavish page-to-screen update. The book saw a group of teens kill a kid in a hit-and-run and then be haunted by a mysterious figure with a spooky connection to the killing. The movie saw a group of teens kill a scary hobo. Then they were slashed apart by a scary hobo. Still, it’s not like anyone’s thought of Ikwydls in years. It made a boatload of cash in 1997, churned out »

Those of us who look back on the nostalgic '90s with fondness did one giant eye-roll in reaction to the news that a reboot of the '97 horror quasi-classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is in the works.
Yes, it's too soon. No, we shouldn't be surprised.
Since we have no control over what Hollywood does (or doesn't do), we thought it best to put what needs to be in the reboot out for all the Internet to see. (That way, it's a matter of public record.)
So listen up, Hollywood. Here's what the children of the '90s need to see in an "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" reboot. Otherwise, we're coming for you.
One of the biggest problems with modern horror is its (usually clunky) inclusion of texts, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and IMs, all of which instantly date the movie. »

We all know what you did 17 summers ago.
In 1997, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" was a horror hit, generating $125 million worldwide and making stars out of Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Philippe, and Freddie Prinze, Jr. So of course, nearly two decades later, Hollywood wants to reboot the whole thing.
According to Deadline, Sony has hired writers - "Oculus" co-writer/director Mike Flanagan and partner Jeff Howard - to pen a new adaptation of Lois Duncan's thriller. The studio hopes to have the movie ready by 2016.
For you wee babes out there, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is the tale of four teens who accidentally hit and kill a pedestrian while driving. A year later, they receive the ominous titular note, and the foursome are soon hunted by a mysterious, raincoat-wearing avenger.
It was all cheesy, scary, so-very-'90s fun. Watch the trailer »

Back in 1997, Columbia Pictures brought us a big screen adaptation of the old teen horror novel by Lois Duncan, I Know What You Did Last Summer. It was during the post-Scream horror boom in Hollywood, where getting casts of unknown, young, beautiful people to die one at a time was cool again. It was during this period that the Final Destination series got its start as well. Summer earned a whopping $125 million on a rather minuscule budget, and got itself a sequel the following year.
Well, now Columbia's parent company is ready to bring the series back. In what's likely to be a complete reboot, Sony Pictures has hired Oculus director/co-writer Mike Flanagan, and his partner on that film Jeff Howard, to take a new crack at Duncan's book. The studio is clearly impressed by what Flanagan and Howard were able to do with Oculus, creating a movie that »

For my money this one can be filed in the “why bother” file but – it appears as if director Mike Flanagan is gearing up to remake the 1997 Kevin Williamson scripted ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’. Released hot on the heels of the huge success of ‘Scream’ the film made pretty good change and actually spawned a franchise with two more chapters seeing the light of day over the years. So, why … Continue reading →

Sony still knows what you did last summer. Seventeen years after the hit 1997 horror flick made its debut, the movie house is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, according to Deadline. Sony Pictures is reportedly developing a new take on the famous film, which is an adaptation of Lois Duncan's 1973 novel by the same name. "Read in Variety that film of I Know What You Did Last Summer, is being remade," Duncan, now 80, tweeted on Monday, Sept. 15. "[The] author is always [...] »
