Hard to believe as it is, Wes hasn’t been with us for nearly 7 years now, but what a legacy to have left us!

He’d be 83 now.

6ft1. 🕯

Today would have been Horror Director Wes Craven's 80th Birthday. It's such a shame he is no longer with us. He died round Christmas time 2015 and I had just bought my boyfriend his film 'My Soul To Take' as one of his Christmas presents.


RIP Wes. xxx 💐

He was never the 6ft 2in he got listed as. 6ft 1in max for his peak is closer to the truth.

at least 5-11 but maybe not quite 6-0.

Doesn't look like a 6'0" at all. 5'11 seems good for him.
Barry Langcaster said on 11/Jun/09
Around 5'11 and change to 6', seems right, maybe 6'1 in his prime but I would not be to sure of that, most reasonable would be 5'11.75 with shoes nowadays.

Mamun's a good Bangladeshi lad! He's done well for himself.

James , lets not forget his age and also he is not standing with his best
posture in the above picture ! I think he would have looked taller if stood
with my kind of posture !


Mamun said on 27/Oct/08
Six feet looked fine !


RisingForce said on 27/Oct/08
That's my favorite too Mamun. The first is the best of the series.
Mamun said on 27/Oct/08
Yes my friends he was a very nice and charming person too ! I have always

the Nigth Mare at Elm's st one !

Viper said on 25/Oct/08
Great director
Wrestling Lover said on 25/Oct/08
He looks 5'10.5 in the pic to me but maybe he is slouching a little bit. But now he is old and definitely lost a good inch.
Markus said on 25/Oct/08
Doesn't look more than 5'11" in my opinion. Maybe posture, seems to leaning forward a bit.
RICHARD said on 25/Oct/08
What's your favorite Craven movie ?
Anonymous3 said on 25/Oct/08
looks 6'0, hasn't lost as much height as some other people his age. peak 6'1 is reasonable too. Rob you've got him spot on I think
miko said on 25/Oct/08
Still looks 6"0 here taking into account posture.

At least Mamun looks happy!
