Ah, damn. Didn’t realize he was ill. The original Nightmare on Elm Street will always be a favorite of mine.


A true master.



Loved Wes Craven, especially The Serpent and the Rainbow.

R.I.P., without nightmares!

PS I literally just remembered that he wrote and directed the 1982 Swamp Thing movie:



So who’s in charge of keeping the bad stuff on the otherside now?


Edgar Wright and Bruce Campbell pay respects.
