Here's my favorite Craven quote, from American Nightmare:
“I think there is something about the American dream, the sort of Disneyesque dream, if you will, of the beautifully trimmed front lawn and the white picket fence. Mom and Dad and happy children. God fearing and doing good whenever they can. That sort of expectation. And the flip side of it, of the anger and sense of outrage that comes from discovering that’s not the truth of the matter. I think that gives American horror films in some ways kind of a… An additional rage”
