A representative for legendary filmmaker Wes Craven, creator of dozens of films including Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street, has confirmed that he passed away following a battle with brain cancer. He was 76.

Born in Ohio, Craven earned an undergraduate degree in English and Psychology from Wheaton College in Illinois and a master's degree in Philosophy and Writing from Johns Hopkins University. He became one of the most prominent voices in horror, with a public persona to rival even his own professional accomplishments, and was sometimes compared to the similarly-charismatic Stan Lee.

Some of his other films include The Hills Have Eyes, The Last House on the Left, The Serpent and the Rainbow, The People Under the Stairs, Vampire in Brooklyn, Cursed, Red Eye and My Soul to Take. From a comic book perspective, he helmed 1982's Swamp Thing with Adrienne Barbeau and Ray Wise.

Mr Craven's work really wasn't my Genre... never cared for Slasher Movies.... but his work made lotsa cash and I respect that.

Rumor has it... he was to write what could possibly have been his Crown Jewel ... Donald Trump's BIO

" A Nightmare On Pennsylvania Ave. "

That would have been the sequel to "W and Dick, a nightmare on Pennsylvania Ave".
