No Tears Only Dreams Now by BLARGEN69 No Tears Only Dreams Now by BLARGEN69
I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Wes Craven today, the man's work truly was an inspiration for me in my youth, if not some of the biggest. The likes only Eiji Tsuburaya and others reached.

I was definitely an Elm Street kid growing up and still am to this day, I watched all the horrors, just look at my Letterboxd, nearly 2,000 watched and probably like, over 1,500 of em are horror movies afklmlsdkf for my whole life though Nightmare on Elm Street as a series was always my go-to, Halloween, Friday, nothing ever came close and I still stand by that opinion.

The Elm Street series was what led me to want to become a filmmaker, as well, the deaths are the most inventive creative and visually gorgeous you can get in the genre honestly, and I always wanted to be a special effects artist. That dream died long ago, but I attribute that dream to my huge creative side that I've always had. And frankly, if it weren't for Elm Street I wouldn't be as fun and ****ed up as I am XD

And you gotta thank Craven and Freddy for the entire 80s line-up of horror quite honestly to the extent it grew, he made New Line and helped made horror big, and I'll always thank him for that. Thank you Wes, you will be seriously missed.

We've got a little bit of something from darn near every Elm Street movie on here, and even two cameos from some other Craven directed films! Spot them?

"Deadly Friend" definitely wasn't Wes' best movie but I'll admit to loving it anyway.

That's some good taste you got then, I think I love Dream Warriors the most, but I still can't decide, it's very hard!! Unlike other slasher series where I could always easily rank them.

I'm sorry, but this is the goofiest Freddy Krueger has look, it's hilarious! and once again, rest in peace, Wes Craven. it's so sad to lose incredibly talented people like Craven. I think whenever somebody special comes into your life, you can be around them for so long.

As for this, this is outstanding you add your unique style to Freddy, again, this is the most goofy he has ever looked. keep up the good work.

Considering how old many of my idols are, there probably will be many of these in the coming years sadly, it's a shame we only ever get to these ideas when it's too late for them to see and appreciate in life.

Rest in peace, Wes Craven. You will forever be the greatest horror-film director ever.
