    He brought the horror genre to the mainstream.

    This is another one of those names that when I read it, I had to re-read it and then sit there and think about it. I was shocked to read this because for me, this isn't someone you would see or hear about dying.

    RIP Mr. Craven.

    Thanks for posting this, OP.

    Actually, I had read about this earlier today and was very taken aback to learn of his death. He was an absolute master of the horror genre. RIP Mr Craven.

    Damn. I think his 70s films were the best, but then again I am a connoisseur of cheap B-flick cinema.

    I'll admit I was not a fan of his work but..... I can surely respect the work he did and the impact he had upon our culture.

    RIP W.C. your fans will miss you and your plethora of work will continue to be well admired.
