If horror movies are to be believed, it’s only a matter of time before your house is invaded by some maniac or gang of wrong ‘uns. Nancy (Heather Langenkamp) has the good sense to set her house up with a load of booby traps, setting her nemesis Freddy Kruger (Robert Englund) on fire, before catching him with a swift one to the family jewels courtesy of a spring-loaded sledge hammer. To be fair, she knew Freddy was coming – but to be completely safe, it’s best to get the house booby trapped in preparation for potential intruders.

Of course, many of Craven’s most celebrated films came earlier, notably ‘The Last House on the Left,’ ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ - but in some respects ‘Scream’ seems even more Craven’s signature series, given he directed all of the films.

Filmmaker Wes Craven, responsible for several of the most influential horror films ever made, has died aged 76. - Nightmare On Elm Street Reboot Announced - Winona Ryder Confirms Beetlejuice 2 - Friday The 13th TV Series Confirmed Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Craven had a strictly religious upbringing which kept him largely sheltered from movies and popular culture throughout his childhood. However, he fell so deeply in love with cinema as an adult that he quit a comfortable career as a college humanities professor to seek work in the film industry. Initially working under various pseudonyms as a director of pornographic movies (he is known to have worked in some capacity on ‘Deep Throat’), Craven made his official directorial debut with 1972′s ‘The Last House on the Left.’ A key film in the rejuvenation of horror in the 1970s (notably a collaboration with producer Sean S Cunningham, who would go on to create ‘Friday the 13th’), ‘The Last House on the Left’ became a huge hit, and also the cause of massive controversy owing to its realistic tone and level of violence which was largely unprecedented at the time. Initially banned in Britain, it was available only in a series of censored versions until the BBFC finally passed it uncut with an 18 certificate in 2008.
