R.I.P. Wes Craven.

TVLine

Wes Craven, the legendary horror auteur who brought his nightmarish vision to both the big and small screens, died over the weekend of brain cancer. He was 76.

Although Craven made his biggest mark in movies via The Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises, his influence extended to TV as well. In 1988, he created Freddy’s Nightmares, a two-season syndicated horror  anthology series in which each episode was introduced by Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund). He also served as an exec producer on MTV’s current adaptation of Scream.

In a 2013 episode of Castle, Craven guest-starred as himself (Rick consulted him when a case suggested people were being actually scared to death by a  haunted DVD).
