In discussing the career of Wes Craven, who died on Sunday at 76, you have to start with A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, horror classics that will still be watched by terrified teens for decades to come. Craven himself embraced the success he found in the horror genre, but he does have one major directing credit that's nowhere near the gore and terror that characterizes the rest of his body of work. (And when we say "body," you should picture it covered in goopy fake blood, of course.)

Courteney Cox recently commended David Arquette, 39, for checking himself into rehab. And she's not the only person who admires his self-improvement efforts.
"I'm glad to hear David is going into rehab," Arquette's Scream 4 director, Wes Craven, told Entertainment Weekly Monday. "He was in a lot of pain, so it's good that he's getting some help."
Craven, who calls Cox, 46, and Arquette, "professional," says any tension between the couple was not obvious during filming of the latest Scream, which stars both of them.
