Five Favourite Films with Wes Craven
The horror master on those films that inspired him.
"For some reason. I think the combination of the gruff, tyrannical old man pursuing the unruly, rebellious son really appeals to me. The scenario is, in some odd way, almost as scary as Freddy Krueger, you know! The evil father is an idea that's really fascinating to me. Hawks is great, The Treasure of Sierra Madre, The Big Sleep... He could do the Salt-of-the-Earth very well. He was a very smooth director; a very good film architect in terms of his storytelling. That's how he constructed this film, and got so deep into the characters."
