Video: Wes Craven

If Alfred Hitchcock was the master of suspense, many will agree Wes Craven is the master of horror. His films reach audiences well beyond the geek niche and after fifteen years in the Scream franchise, number four is about to hit the theaters.

Personally I have always been fascinated with the debate whether or not horror has an adverse impact on the audience. In this clip, Craven explains that he is actually helping people.

And no matter how mediocre the films might sometimes get, I still think I believe him.
