Wesley Earl Craven was born on August 2, 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio. Before he became known as "The Master of Macabre" in some circles, he was a humanities professor. He started off in film as an editor for fellow horror director Sean S. Cunningham. He burst onto the horror scene in 1972, with the shocking and graphic remake of The Virgin Spring, titled Last House on the Left. His follow-up work has ranged from cult hits like The Hills Have Eyes (1977), to box-office smashes like A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
In recent years, Craven has used his work as a form of self-parody, especially in such films as the succesful Scream (1996) and the truly unsuccesful Vampire in Brooklyn (1995).
