R.I.P. Wes Craven, the Master of Horror

Wes Craven’s career spanned decades and his movie success did the same. Anyone who grew up in the 1970's or even in the 2000's has seen a movie of his and was most likely terrified by it. For me, 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' is the most memorable film. I remember watching it when I was about 8 years old (and many times since) and having nightmares afterwards. There is nothing scarier than the idea of a psycho killer attacking you at your most vulnerable state; when you are asleep.
Craven then scared the next generation of movie goers with his blockbuster 'Scream'. The franchise made over 200 million dollars. Then he moved on to 'The Hills Have Eyes', 'The Last House on the Left','Red Eye' and many others. The first two titles were originally created in the 70’s, but were remade and reintroduced in 2000’s to a new generation of horror fans. He is for sure one of the masters of Horror. The genre wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t for him.
Wes died in Los Angeles, CA, August 30th, 2015 from brain cancer. He was 76.
