Shocktober 2007: Wes Craven Week

Shocktober 2007: Wes Craven

Each week in October this year, as part of our Shocktober Classics event, we'll be featuring a different director who has significantly contributed to the horror genre, with new reviews for that director's films from Monday to Friday of that week. Our next master, Wes Craven, probably needs no introduction. Instead, we'll be posting a full biography for him in our Masters section on Saturday, October 12th. It should be sufficient to note that Craven has directed a number of the best and best-known horror films, including Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream.
