Brian J. Robb is a journalist and author of books on Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, River Phoenix, and Leonardo DiCaprio. He has been researching the films of Wes Craven for over ten years, and a majority of the material for this book came from his many interviews with the writer/director.From Booklist:
Robb scans Craven's film work from the seminal Last House on the Left (1972) to Scream 2 (1997). Featuring stills from cult favorites (e.g., The Hills Have Eyes) as well as Craven's more mainstream hits and sporting a reasonably detailed filmography, the book is essentially what the fans have wanted. One chapter is lavished on the entire Nightmare on Elm Street series, though Craven was not directly involved in any episode after Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987). Craven's ability to consistently craft box-office hits has guaranteed him ever larger budgets, despite which his features have retained their ooky charm. Robb is unremittingly positive about Craven, without sacrificing biographical value in tantalizing tidbits, such as that Craven's childhood was spent in a "deeply religious working class Baptist family," that give heart to amateur Freudians and other analysts. Based on interviews with Craven and the reporting of such genre-specific journals as Cinefantastique, GoreZone, and the always entertaining Fangoria, Robb's concoction is entertaining and informative about a recognized cinematic auteur.
