Wes Craven, one of the grandmasters of horror, the famed creator of Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street passed away yesterday at the age of 76.
To see him off, two of my favorite Craven movies.
Scream: Brilliant slasher horror movie that’s also a satire of slasher horror. Widely praised and justly so.
Last House on the Left: His first, and rough beyond belief, but a perfect example of why 1970’s horror was a mean dog that could turn around and bite you at any moment. It was MENACING.
Goodbye to a master. You WILL be missed, sir.
