Wes Craven Dead. (For Now.)

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.

  1. Sad to see the legends start to pass. My favorite will always be the first Nightmare on Elm Street. It had a dream logic all it’s own and a villain that was both over the top and subtly creepy.
