RIP Good Sir  
So this has happened:

My mouth literally dropped when I saw the headline, and since then I've been sitting here thinking of something, anything, poignant to say. I guess all I can say is thank you, Wes Craven, for creating a bogeyman that is (literally) the stuff of nightmares. Thank you, for pumping new blood into horror flicks in the '90's. Thank you, for being just an all around awesome guy. If any of you haven't seen the Nightmare on Elm Street documentary, Never Sleep Again, do so as soon as you can.

RIP, Wes Craven.

ETA: I suppose it would be only fitting to name my favorite Wes Craven film, which is Red Eye. I know, given that Craven gave us Freddy Krueger and other horror classics, I pick the one that's arguably more of a thriller. But it was an unique idea and in many ways tested Craven's role as a director because the scares had to be more grounded. Which. . . that always makes things a thousand times more frightening.

What's yours?

I haven't seen many Wes Craven films myself, but I knew you and Rhoda were fans, so my thoughts flew to you guys when I saw the news on Twitter.

Redeye was flipping amazing, through and through.
