Wes Craven’s Halloween hits

Whether you’re a gore hound or quite new to the horror movie scene, you will have heard of movie director Wes Craven, who passed away in August this year. From Freddy Krueger to Ghostface, he’s created so many horror icons. Let’s look at the last movie he directed before his passing, 2011's Scream 4.

Scream 4 takes place ten years after Ghostface’s killing spree in Scream 3 (This is the one where Sidney Prescott discovers that she has a brother). Sidney, the main protagonist of the franchise, goes back to her home town of Woodsboro as she is touring to promote her book. A new Ghostface killer appears and starts killing people around her again. Scream 4 is the final instalment in the Scream franchise, which also includes a TV series.

Wes Craven reinvigorated the slasher horror genre with the original Scream, as the market had become saturated with knock off movies. He was also at the forefront of the heyday of the genre, having directed horror classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Hills Have Eyes.

Even if you’re not a fan of his movies, you’ll know of him through spoof movies such as Scary Movie. So, with that in mind: “What’s your favourite scary movie?” Get your own Scary Movie on DVD here, and check out what other horror movies we have available online.
