   Wes Craven, whose A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream movies made him one of the most recognizable names in the horror films, has died. His specialty was the Slasher genre of cinema.

    Craven left the academic world for a lucrative role as pornographic film director. In a recent documentary, Craven admitted he made many hard core X-rated films under pseudonyms. While his role in Deep Throat is undisclosed, most of his early known work involved writing, film editing, or both.

   Besides his work in horror films, Craven also directed the drama Music of the Heart, which earned Meryl Streep one of her many Oscar nominations. He also directed a segment in The Twilight Zone movie.

   Wes Craven was 76.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
