Our world was buckled when we all received the news of horror icon, Wes Craven. So many were at a loss for words and we still grieve his absence! Craven was truly mastermind in its truest definition. We are confident very few would argue that without his thumbprint, the horror genre would not be what it is.

EW: Kevin Williamson, the creator behind Dawson’s Creek and The Vampire Diaries, closed out EW PopFest on Sunday with an emotional tribute to the late filmmaker Wes Craven, who gave Williamson his first writing gig: Scream.

Williamson reflected on the legacy of the 1996 horror satire that reinvented the genre. “It’s a moment in time,” he said. “Everyone wanted a resurgence of horror films. It was me, a struggling writer trying to make it, who stumbled upon Wes Craven, who wanted to make it.”

He continued tearfully, “It’s too soon. It’s so many memories. … I’m very, very grateful I got to start my career this way.”
