    One thought on “Screams and Nightmares: The Films of Wes Craven”

    1. An insightful look at Wes Craven's body of work from 1972-1997 through a series of interviews with the filmmaker. His frank dissections of his own film library and background added to films that would ultimately fall through was endlessly fascinating. A great read for fans of his work, I just wish there would be a follow up volume that carried through to the end of his career.

    2. A good hard look at a body of work including the first and last "Elm Street" movies, "The People Under the Stairs," "The Hills Have Eyes," "Last House on the Fucking Left," "Deadly Friend," and the "Scream" trilogy.

    3. Made up of a series of interviews with Wes Craven and others over a period of about 20 years. It's lacking in analysis but it gives a good overview of Craven's film work with special emphasis on the Nightmare on Elm Street series.
