You may or may not know this, but I am a huge horror movie fan. I love the whole genre. I love the gory ones, the psychological ones. I love them all…except Saw. I hate the Saw movies.
I have loved horror since I was 3 years old. One of the earliest horror movies I remember is A nightmare on Elm Street. Obviously written and directed by Wes Craven. While I laugh at the movie and how corny it is now, I was terrified and loved it as a child. I still love it, it just doesn’t scare me so much anymore.
But, there is still Wes Craven and his many wonderful movies. I found out late the other night that he had passed away and I felt like the horror genre had lost a true master of horror.
I didn’t like the Hills Have Eyes, maybe because it still freaks me out…But it was one of those movies that made you jerk awake at night and check the dark corners of your room. My Soul to Take…I could watch that movie a hundred times and still wan to see it again.
It is sad to see such a great writer, producer, and director leave the world. So this is my shout out to the great man of horror. May he rest in peace and may his memory live on. Farewell Mr. Craven!
