Sad news this morning as we've lost one of the true innovators and creators of horror cinema. Director Wes Craven passed away Sunday night following a long battle with brain cancer, and we've assembled some of the best moments from his films to honor such a tremendous figure in the motion picture industry.

With his very first film, 1972's The Last House on the Left, Craven proved to be a master at taboo-busting, button-pushing horror thrills. The film was also chock full of flesh, earning its Hall of Fame rating thanks to some knockout nudity from Sandra Cassel, Lucy Grantham, and Jeramie Rain!Cassel



For 1981's Deadly Blessing, Craven brought horror to Amish country a full three years before Children of the Corn. The film also has a fantastic nude scene, though it was the first instance of Craven using a body double for his starin this instance, the gorgeous Maren Jensen!MJensen

For his other Hall of Fame flick, 1982's Swamp Thing, brought us the nude debut of one of the most sensationally stacked actresses in history, Adrienne Barbeau, and in a PG film to boot!Barbeau

1984 was a banner year in Craven's career as he not only brought us his first sequel in The Hills Have Eyes Pt II, featuring some terrific toplessness from Colleen Riley and Penny Johnson...Riley


...But of course it was A Nightmare on Elm Street that cemented Wes' legacy that year! While the film was short on nudity, it did give us a nice nipslip from Heather Langenkamp, as well as a much better look at her body double's breasts!Langenkamp


Wes wouldn't return to the Nightmare franchise until 1994, but he kept busy in the meantime with films like The Serpent and the Rainbow, which featured a tantalizing topless sex scene, though star Cathy Tyson did use a body double!Tyson

Sadly, this would end up being the last nude scene Craven shot, though we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the knockout nipples on Rose McGowan in 1996's Scream, the film that helped revive Craven's career and bring his work into focus for a new generation of horror fans!RMcGowan

Wes Craven was a true maverick and an innovator in a genre that requires almost constant reinvention, and he managed to reinvent himself several times as well. He will be missed, but we're thankful for the incredible body of work he left behind.
