Wes Craven's recent death was a loss to the horror world. As Robert Englund says in the video below, "he literally reinvented horror three times." Larry King brought together horror icons, including actors and writers and directors who worked with the great auteur, and those influenced by his work.
You can watch the episode above in full. It's interesting to hear from the stars of Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, both of whom seemed to have no idea of where their films would go. Craven's ability to "evolve with the times" and explore "genuine fears" is cited multiple times.
Wes Craven's horror legacy and impact is still felt and will be for generations - go watch one of his films for Halloween.
