Wes Craven passes away


In the United States, at the age of 77, one of the most famous directors working in the horror genre, Wes Craven, has died. The cause of death was brain cancer, with which the director struggled for the last few months of his life.

Wes Craven was born in Cleveland in 1939. In college he studied English literature and psychology, and then worked as a teacher. At the end of the 60s of the last century he moved to New York, where he got a job as a sound engineer. Craven shot his first movie in 1971, and his ascent to Olympus of the genre began in 1972 with the release of the then cult movie The Last House on the Left.

In 1984, the premiere of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" took place, which gave rise to perhaps the most famous horror movie series, and spawned one of the most popular characters in the genre. The project had many sequels with varying degrees of success.

Wes Craven also has several movies of the Scream series, thrillers "Night Flight" and "People Under the Stairs", the drama "Music of the Heart" and many others. The fourth part of The Scream, released in 2011, was the director's last full-length movie project. Wes Craven has also written many popular movies in his genre.
