LOS ANGELES (AP) –  Wes Craven, the prolific writer-director who thrilled
audiences with iconic and bloody suburban slashers like "Nightmare on Elm

A prolific writer, director and editor, Craven is credited with reinventing the
teen horror genre with the 1984 release of "A Nightmare on Elm Street"
starring a then-unknown Johnny Depp.
