I rarely stalked people, but last year I successfully stalked Wes Craven on line and found his e-mail address. I e-mailed him and told him how I had been a fan of his works since I was a teenager… and was hoping that he would take a look at a project of mine. He wrote back and asked, “My first question would be, where did you get my e-mail address?”
It’s really sad to see one of my favorite filmmakers passed as I’ve been very much looking forward to his next picture. Come to think of it, all my favorite filmmakers are still alive. Wes Craven is the first one to pass.
Mr. Craven has made classic after classic since his first feature The Last House On the Left in 1972. Below is one of the most memorable moments from the movie:
His original A Nightmare on Elm Street remains one of my favorite horror films:
The Scream series remains one of the most clever and fun horror franchises ever made:
