I've got some sad news for you if you haven't heard yet. Wes Craven, the legendary horror writer/director died Sunday and while I originally intended on getting up to date on the Puppet Master comic series for this installment of Just For The Hell of It Mondays, I figured I'd do a book to honor a man who created an icon, that scared the hell out of me as a kid. I watched a lot of horror flicks growing up and no one scared me the way that Freddy Krueger did and it might be because of the premise of a slasher that kills you in your nightmares and then having said nightmares that made Krueger a character that was truly terrifying....... you know, until he got goofy. Even then though, he's still a character that will never be forgotten and nobody will ever forget the man that was behind the nightmare. It's pretty sad to me because it was films like Nightmare on Elm Street, The People Under The Stairs and Shocker that really made me want to be a part of the horror genre growing up, so while Wes gave me nightmares, he also gave me dreams.
