The world of horror, and entertainment at large, was rocked big time by the unexpected passing of Wes Craven this past weekend, who lost his battle with brain cancer at the age of 76. All of us here on iHorror are still trying to collect ourselves, as Craven was a man we admired and deeply cherished.
It’s always nice to see the horror community come together and spread nothing but love, and this week fans from across the globe have been paying tribute to Wes Craven in their own ways. We simply can’t get enough, and we’ve taken a whole lot of comfort in those loving eulogies and remembrances.
The folks over at Screen Crush came up with a fun way to pay tribute to the master, collecting together the various screaming scenes from his many movies. Clips from films like Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream (duh!) were cut together for the tribute video.
Nobody has made audiences, or his characters, scream more than Wes Craven, and this supercut video reminds us of how great he was at doing just that. It’s of course unfair to reduce Craven’s art to a bunch of screams, as his movies were so much more than that, but we think he would get a kick out of this.
Check out the tribute video below.
