According to several sources, including his official Twitter page, horror maestro and FTN favourite Wes Craven has passed away, following a lengthy battle with brain cancer.
While known for creating several successful movies, Craven will be mostly remembered for the Nightmare on Elm Street series, as well as Scream – which is currently enjoying success as an ongoing show on MTV. And of course let’s not forget his cameo in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back…
A charismatic mainstay of the silver screen who changed the horror genre forever, he will be missed by his family, friends and fans. Rest in peace, sir.
