So one of the iconic legends of horror, Wes Craven, died today at the age of 76 after a long struggle with brain cancer. Craven is most notably recognized for his classics Scream, The last house on the left, The hills have eyes, Nightmare on Elm Street and a couple other horror goodies. Though his career was starting to deteriorate, he did leave a good mark on the horror genre.
Wes, you’ll be missed.

RIP, Mr. Craven.

Despite having my gripes with Craven and some of his bad choices he made in his career, I still respect Wes Craven cause he helped the horror genre to stand on it’s own and teach other directors on how to make a horror film done right and wasn’t afraid to push the boundaries of what horror can do in film.
R.I.P. Craven. I’ll see you in my nightmare.
