Wes Craven needs no introduction. He created Freddy Krueger. For a generation of people, that was THE boogeyman. The man that haunted our nightmares.

Then he brought us Ghostface Killer and showed us that sometimes the thing we needed to fear the most was the very people we knew.

Between Scream and several of the Nightmare movies, Wes Craven created a pantheon of horrors that would scare us forever. And that's not counting the ways he invented the horror genre with The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes

We suffered a terrible loss today. Wes Craven was a talented, talented man. I can think of no one better that deserves a place in my nightmares.
