Throwback Thursday: RIP, Wes Craven. 

I found these photos in my Tumblr archive recently and thought they should be shared. These are photos from the time Wes Craven did a talk at The New York Times building during Halloween 2010, a few months before SCREAM 4 was released. I was excited but probably more apprehensive for the next, in my opinion unnecessary, edition.

This was a cool talk and my friend and I met him after briefly. I have a production photo of him and Neve Campbell from the original Scream hanging in my apartment now (or at least it will be, whenever I get around to hanging it).

The horror world misses you, Wes. 

I saw this on Facebook today and it made me so sad. RIP, Wes Craven. 

I remember seeing him in conversation with a journalist from the New York Times about six months before Scream 4 was released. My friend and I met him very briefly after and I have a photo of him and Neve Campbell on the set of Scream that’s signed by him in my apartment now. 

I remember watching Scream with my best friend and her older sister when it came out on video (!) in 1997. I was 11 and we thought we should watch it in the dark. By the end of the first scene (RIP Drew Barrymore), we thought it was a good idea to turn the lights back on. I own all 3 Scream movies and I’ve watched them more than is probably normal. I remember sneaking into seeing Scream 3 three times. 

I’m watching the Scream trilogy this weekend with my dude in Wes’ honor (Scream 4 was a mistake). In case you’re looking for other Wes Craven movies on Netflix, you can find a list here.
