    :(

    One of the masters of terror has passed away. Truly depressing news. He was 76 and died after a long battle with brain cancer.

    R.I.P. to one of the absolute best.

    Damn, that's crappy news! I didn't know he had brain cancer. He won't be forgotten, that's for sure. RIP.

    And they had just introduced a new way of tackling brain cancer and it had been on the BBC news only the other day. I had no idea he was as old as 76.

    Still in shock. Arguably one of the best horror directors / writers.

    Rest easy Wes. Thanks for al the scares.

    He was one of the game changers of the horror genre and will be missed

    Rest in peace Wes

    Im so gutted to hear of Wes's death. It really shocked me as I'm a massive fan of his work. My favourite film is A Nightmare On Elm Street and he's genius will be sorely missed my movie fans all over the world!! As a mark of respect i will be changing my avatar to something more suitable.

    R I P WES!


    (Maybe as a sign of respect others can change their avatar, just for a day or two to reflect Wes's passing! Just an idea)

    Ben Bishop (who HDN interviewed last March here) put together this quick-yet-awesome piece of Scream art after hearing of Craven's death. I thought I'd share it here.
