It's August 2, maybe you or someone you know has a birthday. And so does iconic horror movie director Wes Craven.
After getting his start in pornographic films, Craven went on to create the horror mega franchise A Nightmare On Elm Street and helm the Scream series, which somehow had even less acting talent than his porn work.
