FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE TRAILER PARK: A TRAILER PARK TRIBUTE TO THE FILMS OF WES CRAVEN

What can I say about the death of Wes Craven that hasn’t been said already? That he was a master of horror; which he was. That he created a character in Freddy Krueger that is as iconic and memorable as Frankenstein’s monster or Count Dracula; which he did. Was all of his movies absolute perfection in every way? No. Bad or good, though, the one thing they could never be called is boring. From Krug in The Last House on the Left to Ghostface in the Scream series of films Craven gave us characters that will not be forgotten and for that reason we will not forget him.

As tribute to Wes Craven I present to you the trailers from his many genre films. If I couldn’t find the trailer then I present to you the film in its entirety; if I couldn’t find either then I humbly apologize. Here, in chronological order, is a Friday Night at the Trailer Park tribute to the films of Wes Craven.

    • I’ve never seen Chiller. Invitation to Hell was a TV movie starring Robert Urich, Joanna Cassidy and Susan Lucci. Was it based on the atmosphere in Lucci’s dressing room on one of the many occassions in which she lost at the Daytime Emmy Awards? It could have been. Actually it’s about a posh neighborhood with Lucci as a demon residing over a spa that’s the gateway to Hell. That’s the full movie I have within the post. Enjoy!
