A Return to the Living Dead, and Crystal Lake Memories, is making his mark in the world of narrative features with The Id, which follows a woman endlessly tormented by both the past and her abusive father, whom she is tasked with caring for in his twilight years.

Filmmaker/Author Thommy Hutson Talks Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy: The Making of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street

Having written and/or produced some of the horror genre’s best documentaries, including such extensive ones as 2010’s Never Sleep Again, 2011’s More Brains! A Return To The Living Dead and 2013’s epic Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th, it’s easy to say that Thommy Hutson not only loves the horror genre, but wants to give genre fans something different than just your run of the mill special feature Epk.

Scream:the Inside Story picks apart the Craven classic Tonight on Bio

Regardless of your thoughts on Craven’s later films (Scream 3, Cursed, My Soul to Take), Craven has made a solid name for himself in horror. Whether it is his earliest films, Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, that show how quickly man can embrace violence, or the sophisticated direction and hallucinatory imagery of his later films, A Nightmare on Elm St. and The Serphent and The Rainbow, all of these films hold a place among the classics of the horror genre. Yet, it was a film from 1996 that recognized all of the elements that made these previous films successful combined with a healthy slice of dark humor, that made Scream one of Wes Craven’s most successful films to date. Scream not only was a film that unveiled the rules of the horror genre … it completely re-invented them.
