The Legendary Director Wes Craven has passed away aged 76 and it is truly a sad day for the film industry.

He was an incredible American horror film maker, creating the likes of NightMare on Elm Street (1984) and Scream(1996). As a filmmaker he has been credited with many things including reinventing the teen horror genre. He has also worked with a variety of well known names and faces, many of whom have already tweeted messages of support as well as their memories of him and his work.

While I am not the biggest fan of horror I was a big fan of his work and in particular the Scream films and I will certainly be watching them tonight. Not than I have ever needed an excuse but it seems like an appropriate way to show my support for a legend of the film community.
