Honestly, I must have dressed up as Freddy Krueger for Halloween for at least seven, consecutive years. I had the glove, the sweater, the hat, and used my own face. ZING! Ha! I just slammed myself!
Anyway, Wes Craven was the director of A Nightmare On Elm Street, the Scream franchise, and a host of other horror classics. RIP, Wes! Hopefully you're scaring the Hell out of Jesus in Heaven!
