Mike and I just heard the news that iconic filmmaker, producer, and author Wes Craven has passed away at age 76 of brain cancer. The Untenable Podcast wishes to extend our deepest sympathies to the Craven family in this time of grief.
Any fan of film has more than likely come across the art of Mr. Craven at some point. His creations are iconic, have developed cult followings, and had an element of prescience in culture. It’s nearly impossible to look at modern film, specifically horror, and not find some sort of inspiration or links to the work of Wes Craven.
I’m nearly at a loss for words. It’s possible that we will either write some more about Wes Craven, or even release a bonus episode talking about Wes Craven. At this point, who knows.
This news hit us really hard.
