Needless Things Podcast 75 – The Films of Wes Craven

Phantom Troublemaker and the Needless Things Irregulars talk about the career and impact of Master of Horror Wes Craven in the newest Needless Things Podcast!

This week Phantom is joined by Beth V, R.T. Ewell, and Devlin in the very first all-contributor episode of the show.

Wes Craven passed away on August 30th, 2015, but over the course of his life he accomplished something few do – he created a legacy that will be remembered for decades, if not centuries. It would be difficult to overstate the impact that
Craven had on modern horror. He innovated at every turn and created two of the most noteworthy and successful franchises the genre has ever seen –
A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Each Craven production had an originality and wit that marked it as his, and yet he played with varied tones and styles with ease. Not every film was a success, but they all bear a common theme – Wes Craven pushing himself to always evolve and do new things. Even if those new things meant taking a wry look at the old.

Listen in as Beth, Phantom, Devlin, and Rich share their memories and personal experiences with the films of a true legend – Wes Craven!
