Master of Horror Wes Craven, Dead at 76

It was a sad for the horror movie world when one Master of Horror, Wes Craven passed away at the age of 76. Craven is best known for introducing Freddy Krueger in the world via 'Friday the 13th' and giving the younger generation the slasher maniac, Ghostface in 'Scream'.

Not a lot has been reported about Craven’s passing, except that he had been fighting brain cancer in recent months. Other masterpieces rom Wes Craven are 'The Hills Have Eyes', The Last House on the Left', 'Cursed' and 'Red Eye'. 

Craven’s most recent production, The Girl in the Photographs, will premiere as part of “Midnight Madness” at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
