While he was a humanities college teacher, Wes married Bonnie Broecker, mother of both his children, Jonathan and Jessica. But after few years, they separated and the children stayed with Bonnie.Wes left his job as a teacher and after employment as taxi driver he became a sound editor for a post-production company in New York. And after the co-direction of Together (1971) with Sean S. Cunningham, Wes made the horror movie, The Last House on the Left (1972). The movie, released in August 1972, was a big success as was his second movie, The Hills Have Eyes (1977), winning the critic's prize at the Sitges Film Festival.Wes has gone onto win many more awards, including one for the best movie at the Avoriaz Film Festival for _Nightmare On Elm Street, A (1984)_ .

- In 1976 he acted in "Tales That Will Tear Your Heart Out," a project being made under the supervision of friend Roy Frumkes, who was teaching at a state university at that time. Shortly after the filming, the raw stock was mistakingly re-exposed by another student, so both days' shooting were lost.
- Donated to the Planned Parenthood/Dream Catchers Foundation charity auction 10 minute personal phone call and two premiere tickets to his next motion picture, "Pulse." He has also donated the original mask from his movie _Scream (1996)_ along with other original props. The auction started June 19, 2002 and the props auction started June 29, 2002.

- His father died when he was 4-years-old.
- He was the disc jockey for the campus radio station at Clarkson College, where he was a humanities professor.
- He nearly turned down the option to direct the hit _Scream (1996)_ because the first scene with Drew Barrymore reminded him too vividly the climax sequence of The Last House on the Left (1972), his first film.
- Directed a documentary about former president Bill Clinton. Craven and the film crew followed Clinton for three hours into the White House a few days before his departure. (January 2001)
- Former son-in-law, composer Michael Maccini.
- When actor-producer Robert Evans suffered a stroke May 6, 1998, Craven was having a drink with him in Evans' screening room when he collapsed in front of him. Evans later quipped, "I really scared the shit out of the king of horror."
- Co-wrote the screenplay "Pulse" with screenwriter Vince Gilligan. The script was based on Kiyoshi Kurosawa's original Japanese horror film. Craven and Gilligan scripted the final draft in Fall 2002 for Miramax's Dimension Films. The production for this film should have started on october 1, 2002 in Los Angeles. On July 2003, Dimension's chairmain Bob Weinstein announced that "Pulse" would never be produced because it was too similar to The Ring (2002).
- Developed the "evil house" premise for the computer game "Wes Craven's Principles of Fear." Although the game won About Game's Bronze Medal award for Interactive Fiction when the prototype was demonstrated at the 1997 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Atlanta, the game was never completed, due to the financial failure of the game's publisher.
