This Month We Remember Legendary Director Wes Craven!

Directors come from all over the world to create their masterpieces: misunderstood and understood. Throughout the years, we have seen directors rise then turn into the great beyond. A couple weeks ago, we lost one of the most remembered horror directors of all time. That director was the legendary Wes Craven.

At first, he worked in the education field as an English professor at Westminster College then a Humanities professor at Clarkson University. During his teaching career, he purchased a 16mm camera and began working on short films.

In 1972, he released his first full-length horror feature entitled, THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. The film told the story of two teenage girls on their way to a rock concert. While on their way, they are kidnapped by four psychotic killers. Later, the killers stumble upon one of the girls’ home where her parents obtain their revenge on them.

It has received a continuous cult following to this day along with receiving a sequel in 1985 and remake in 2006. With another hit under his belt, this did not stop Craven from his creative streak! Wes Craven continued transforming his films from various dreams he had. One of which we know today through it’s series and it’s iconic serial killer who haunts you in your dreams. It spawned many sequels, kick started several well-known actors careers, and brought terror to the silver screen and beyond.

This month, we remember the legend Wes Craven was and commemorate his works, both the misunderstood films and accepted ones. What are your favorite Wes Craven films? Which one do you believe is the most misunderstood?
