It's hard enough to redefine a genre once in a career, but horror virtuoso Wes Craven managed to do it twice.Craven didn't solely deal in terror.Craven's feature debut under his own name was 1972's "The Last House on the Left," a horror film, inspired by Ingmar Bergman's "The Virgin Spring," about teenage girls abducted and taken into the woods.The Ohio-set film about teenagers (including a then-unknown Johnny Depp) who are stalked in their dreams, which Craven wrote and directed, spawned a never-ending franchise that has carried on until, most recently, a 2010 remake."Scream," written by Kevin Williamson and starring a cast including Drew Barrymore and Neve Campbell, played off of the horror cliches Craven helped create.It hatched three sequels, all of which Craven directed.Craven increasingly oversaw a cottage industry of horror branded with his name – including remakes of his 1977 film "The Hills Have Eyes" (2006) and "The House on the Left" (2009).
