So Wes Craven died yesterday and, as a result, the world is a little less good. Craven is one of the greatest names in the history of horror, having created genre-defining films in multiple decades. He made a career out of spooky shit and will rightly be remembered for crafting some of horror cinema's most-enduring classics. Over the years, I have spent an ungodly amount of my free time watching and rewatching his oeuvre, and I can say with an exceptionally high degree of certainty that the man was a G . Now, in true internet fashion, I present to you my top five reasons why Wes Craven was a complete and total G. Of course, all five reasons are films, because nothing else would make sense. If you haven't seen the following movies, I would recommend that you quit your job, go home, and acquaint yourself with the their greatness.
#5: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)
Of Craven's classics, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET probably holds up the least, due in no small part to the sheer 80s-ness of it all. Nonetheless, its inventive premise, impressive visuals, and iconic villain combine to make this movie more than worth the watch.
Wrote another screenplay, fam. It's called WIDOWED and you can check out the teaser scene over on the script page. Go give it a read and let me know what you think. It's set in Upstate New York and it's all about witchcraft and the occult. No brooms though. I like my witches to be #darkerandedgier because I'm a gloomy, brooding artist and you just don't understand me, man *rends clothes, beats breast*
