Wes Craven

Wes Craven, who created A Nightmare on Elm Street, passed away over the weekend.

If you've read this blog on a frequent basis, you'll probably know that I was a big fan of the Elm Street series of movies back when I was younger. 

I owe Craven some gratitude because I have so many fond memories from my childhood that would never have happened had it not been for his creative mind.

It's just little things like bonding with my American cousins, receiving a signed Robert Englund autograph through the post, going to see the R-rated Nightmare on Elm Street 3 on an American air force base in Germany and more.

Oh, and by the way - Nightmare 3 is still the best movie of the lot. 

In 2013, I dedicated an entire week to blogging about A Nightmare on Elm Street. I've added today's post to the thread, so you can click on the label underneath this post so you can read it for yourself.

It sort of serves as a tribute to Wes Craven's work in a roundabout way.
