Wes Craven 1939-2015
Brain Cancer took the life of Horror Legend Wes Craven on Sunday. He was 76.
A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, The Hills Have Eyes, The People Under the Stairs, The Last House on the Left, and my personal favorite, The Serpent and the Rainbow… these are just a few of the brilliant horror films he was a part of. And, to be honest, a part of me.
His movies were a staple of my youth, frequently rented for weekend vhs horror marathons. They were cheap scares on a cheap budget and I loved it.
He produced movies that fed the nightmares of young people from the seventies on… and those films will continue to be classics of the genre.
Wes Craven will be missed, but his legacy is forever.
