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, reported Comicbook.com.
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.

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.
