    *, brain cancer, too. Lived a good life and made some good movies (The Serpent and the Rainbow is still the favorite of mine of his filmography), can't ask for more.

    It's so hard to believe he is gone. A true master of horror and a great man.

    He was very influential over me as a collector, and a maker. I still have about 30 Ghostface masks scattered amongst boxes in my house. It's funny, one of the first things I did was cast one of the store bought cheap masks and retooled it into the KNB mask... The most recent project I tackled was replicating the mask seen on MTVs Scream... Almost a decade of my life and the circle goes back to Wes.

    Rest in peace Wes.

    Watched Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes last night, woke up to find out we've lost him. Heartbreaking. RIP to one of the architects of my childhood.

    If not for him the horror genre probably would have shriveled up and died out.

    I've never seen any of his films (I can't handle horror), but Mark Gatiss posted this beautiful tribute to him on twitter.

    One of the greats.

    I maintain that, f/x aside, the underlying concept and overall execution of A Nightmare on Elm Street is still one of the most brilliantly terrifying films ever made.

    Nightmare 7 and Scream both played around with the meta aspects of the horror genre, too, in really amazing ways.

    I'm watching Wes Craven's Shocker right now. It's been a while since I last seen it, and thought it would be best to start with probably one of his underrated works.

    What a shame, he gave me many enjoyable and entertaining moments during my life, sometimes making me jump or sometimes making me contemplate an interesting concept or image that he brought to the screen. R.I.P. Mr. Craven.
