Additionally, he directed a lot of episodes of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' in the 80's and, quite bizarrely, the {{biopic}} ''Film/MusicOfTheHeart'' (his only PG rated movie). Craven joked that he went "from violence to violins" in directing a movie about a music educator played by Creator/MerylStreep.

Wesley Earl [[MeaningfulName Craven]] (born August 2, 1939 - August 30, 2015) was an American film director, producer and writer, and was the creator of many iconic and genre-defining horror films. He was probably best known for his creation of Freddy Krueger, the dream-haunting villain introduced in ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984''. He also found great success a decade later with the movie ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', a {{deconstruction}} of the [[SlasherMovie slasher sub-genre]] that launched a [[FollowTheLeader slew of late 90's imitation horror films]].

Added DiffLines:
** Creator/QuentinTarantino argued in an interview with ''Vulture'' that Craven's direction kept ''Scream'' from being better than it was. (Awkwardly, it was only a few days before Craven passed away...)
