Wes Craven Classics to Unspool at IFC Center This Fall


One…two… Wes is coming for you…

His nightmares have become our reality. His visions have paved the way for others to follow. He is the scream that echoes in the hallways of our unconscious. He is the sandman, he is our nightmare… he is Wes Craven.

In honor of the late dream master himself, NYC’s IFC Center (323 Sixth Avenue at 3rd Street; 212-924-7771) will be running a collection of Craven classics through December 26, each film showcased during their widely popular Waverly Midnights program. This special series, respectfully titled “Wes Craven’s Nightmares,” spotlights 12 films that truly represent the creative, innovative and thrilling work of the late horror auteur.

Now fear fans can come together to pay tribute to Craven and relive all the terror with such films as THE HILLS HAVE EYES, SHOCKER, THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW, SCREAM and the genre landmark A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.
