The news of the passing of Wes Craven – The Horror Maestro, as THR called him – hit everyone by surprise on the night of August, 30th. The same month of his birthday. He was 76.

I didn’t personally met him, but we’ve had some online interactions through the years – that resulted on a signed poster and a mask that hang now very proudly on my wall. He seemed to be a very kind man.

There was a lot of emotional testimonials, but I selected this one, by Kevin Williamson, Neve Campbell and Bob Weinstein.

Craven is survived by his wife, producer Iya Labunka; sister Carol Buhrow; son Jonathan Craven; daughter Jessica Craven, stepdaughter Nina Tarnawsky and three grandchildren.
