Farewell, Wes Craven.

He seemed like a good guy.
Going off this photo, it’s weird to think he was the man behind Freddy Krueger.

Famed horror-film director Wes Craven passed away yesterday. Craven was the mastermind behind not just one, but three horror series– ‘The Hills Have Eyes,’ ‘Scream,’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street,’ –as well as the stand-alone-but-was-remade ‘The Last House on the Left,’ all of which have been highly influential to their genre over the years. I can’t exactly say I was a fan of most of his work, but I can never the less appreciate the impact that it had on horror cinema as a whole. That, and in interviews, he just seems like a very kind, insightful individual, and I admire that. Maybe that’s what it takes to spend decades making scary movies with high body counts without going nuts.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Craven. May you entertain souls forever on that big screen in the sky.
