    Fucking cancer is worse than any silver screen monster.

    A true master of the horror genre and will be remembered longer than many of us long after we're gone. RIP Mr. Craven.

    damn RIP

    This may sound corny, but NOES had a big influence on my life. All those books I bought from Paladin Press were because of Nancy buying Booby Traps & Improvised Anti-Personnel Devices

    Fuck an A NOES was the movie of 5th grade for me.
