The Hollywood Reporter has reported that horror master, and one of the people responsible for my undying love of horror, Wes Craven has died after fighting brain cancer.
Our hearts go out to his family and the legion of fans whom he inspired throughout his career.
I’m really at a loss here. What a shocking post to have to write.
Craven is best known for creating horror icon Freddy Krueger of A Nightmare On Elm Street, as well as Scream, Shocker, The Hills Have Eyes, The People Under The Stairs, and so much more.
More info as we get it.
RIP Wes Craven
August 2, 1939 – August 30, 2015
