Wes Craven: The Reluctant Horror Filmmaker Who Became A Legend – Episode 298

This week, as we are recovering from New Years, we wanted to pull out one of the episodes we recorded while at The 2023 Eerie Horror Fest. This pick being our look at the career of Wes Craven. The man who brought both Freddy Krueger and Ghostface to life was a complex individual who strived to tell stories that dived into the inner workings of our dreams, fears, and trauma but who also did not want to be known as simply a filmmaker who weaved nightmares.
