Infographic of the Day: Top-grossing (and gross) horror movies

Horror movies have been popular for almost as long as there have been movies, and we know why: It's fun to scream and peek out at the carnage through hands that are clapped over your eyes. But this infographic shows us another reason why horror is so popular with Hollywood.

That's right. It's money.

This infographic shows us how much money 36 horror movies have grossed compared to how much they cost to make. It's pretty eye-opening ... and that's without seeing the carnage.

The infographic also contains a list of 15 of the highest-rated horror movies, based on Rotten Tomatoes' ranking. We're calling it "our future Netflix queue."
