Horror Movie Director Wes Craven Dies

The prolific writer-director, who died Sunday at age 76, ushered in two distinct eras of suburban slashers, first in the 1980s with his iconic Nightmare on Elm Street and its indelible, razor-fingered villain Freddy Krueger. He did it again in the 1990s with the self-referential Scream. He was active up until his death. Craven had numerous television projects in development, including a new Scream series for MTV.
