Wes Craven, Horror Maestro, Dies at 76

Sadly this checks out to be true as it's just making the press...


Wes Craven, the famed writer-director known for the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream movies, died Sunday after a battle with brain cancer. He was 76. Craven, whose iconic Freddy Krueger character horrified viewers, died at his home in Los Angeles, his family announced.

Looks like the Horror movie world lost a cinematic pioneer, love him or dislike him, RIP. Personally while no fan of Scream(he was working on the TV series) but respect his Horror movie legacy. Nightmare on Elm Street is an 80s staple whether into B horror or not for some.

The genre is already slipping away, this is the last thing Horror needs right now.


RIP Wesley, sir. You entertained us greatly!

I loved the nightmare on elm street movies and the first scream. I love how he always tried to understand things he was ahead of times on like video games and the internet

His movies were an indelible part of the Halloween atmosphere in our home when I was younger. I will definitely be binge watching the entire Nightmare series of DVDs this October.
Rest in peace.

Peace.

Why God why!? Why not one of the multitude of untalented hacks making stupid found footage movies?

He made some truly genre defining classics - a true horror legend.


RIP Wes

they should have his body pop up in the casket with blood puking out of his mouth.
