The king of horror movies Wes Craven passed away from brain cancer at the age of 76.
Craven was best known for his horror films, including such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Nightmare on Elm Street if you recall is the movie that brought us Freddy Krueger who became a cultural icon and synonymous with the horror genre.
Other notable Craven films include The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988), Shocker (1989), The People Under the Stairs (1991) and Music of the Heart (1999).
The horror genre won’t be the same. Rest in peace.
