It seems like Wes Craven has taken a lot of flack lately from the horror community, both for the shilling nature of his Twitter feed, and his willingness to remake his own films.
And, I get that. I've always loved Craven though because of the cerebral way that he treats the genre. People forget that before going into horror films Craven was actually a Professor of Humanities. He brings an interesting viewpoint on things, whether or not they always turn out Oscar worthy.
