Added DiffLines:

* DecoyProtagonist: Most of his films start out with a character who is set up to become the protagonist, only to die so that the focus can be shifted to someone else for the remainder of the story.


Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: Cops are usually incompetent, though well meaning. Oftentimes they're a complete hinderance to the main characters.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Craven was raised by a Baptist family and was reportedly a target for bullies (including one with [[NamesTheSame the same name]] as his most famous creation). After leaving home, he gained an education in English Literature, Psychology, and Writing; he then married, and started a family. His marriage ended after five years, and his children left with his ex-wife. He moved to New York, and eventually directed ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft'', followed five years later by ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes''. The success of these movies made him a seminal name in horror cinema.

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.
