No other director has left his name on as many horror-movie touchstones as Wes Craven. From "The Last House on the Left" (1972) and "The Hills Have Eyes" (1977) to "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (1984) and "Scream" (1996), his American nightmares have spawned scores of film or TV follow-ups, spin-offs or remakes. His movies have engaged fresh crowds of collegiate audiences with each new filmgoing generation. His career is based on experiments in terror — the kind of filmmaking you'd think would come from "movie brats" who spent their youth hopping from theater to theater, in search of the next primal scream.

Now, he can go for his first Winston Cup victory on the track where he gained fame.Craven returns to the Winston Cup circuit after an almost four-month absence while battling post-concussion syndrome."It's hard to put this in perspective," Craven said. "Winning the pole was a big step. Now, I need a win. That's the next big thing."When he left the sport after an examination in Atlanta, Craven didn't know when he would return.

For a movie that is ostensibly about adventure and that indeed takes as its title and setting the world's most dangerous mountain, "K2" sticks pretty timidly to well-worn paths.The plot is uphill all the way: Two buddies, one macho, one sensitive, risk all and betray all to stand momentarily on a crest of snow-packed stone and say to the billion tons of rock piled up six miles deep beneath them, "We beat you, you -------!" Why? Because it's there, that's why, and because boys will be boys.

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman - just two weeks after his fourth-round knockout of Australia's Kali Meehan - said yesterday that he plans to accept an invitation to replace the injured Riddick Bowe in tomorrow night's 10-rounder against journeyman Kenny Craven at the Louisville Gardens in Louisville, Ky. Rahman (40-5-1, 33 knockouts) said that his replacing Bowe (41-1, 33 knockouts) was "contingent on the approval of his promoter, Don King," which the fighter said he expected to receive.

NEW YORK -- There is nowhere to run, and this is no Wes Craven movie. Craven is aware that his fans upstairs at the New York Comic Con would chase him like a slasher after a busty virgin if they saw him. "It's exciting that there's an audience out there," says Craven, at the comics and fantasy convention to promote The Hills Have Eyes 2, opening Friday. "There are not that many genres out there where the audience follows filmmakers. It means that the genre's very vital and speaking specifically to the audience."

Red Eye, with Rachel McAdams as a reluctant airline passenger who probably should have stayed on the ground, is a welcome antidote to the bloated, overthought and oversold studio pictures that have been drawing a collective yawn from audiences this summer. It's a taut thriller with a strong character at its core and a despicable villain there to torment her every step of the way, a crowd-pleaser in all the best senses of the term. Director Wes Craven, working with first-time screenwriter Carl Ellsworth, wastes not a single moment in telling the story of Lisa Reisart, the manager of a high-priced Miami hotel, who is forced to take a red-eye flight back home after attending the funeral of her grandmother.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Heavyweight contender Calvin Brocks tap-dancing abilities are well-known to his friends. But fancy footwork wasnt in his plans for last nights scheduled 10-rounder against journeyman Kenny Craven. Brock rose to 26-0 with 21 knockouts with a workmanlike effort en route to a fourth-round stoppage before a sellout crowd of more than 12,000 at Boardwalk Hall. Craven, of Gulfport, Miss., slipped to 25-16 with 11 knockouts. "I tailor my footwork to my opponent, but I didn't need to do any excessive movement tonight," said Brock, 30, of Charlotte, N.C. "A lot of times when you fight somebody you haven't seen before on film, you take a couple of rounds.

WASHINGTON - Let me put my bias right up front so nobody can miss it: I am a member of the United Church of Christ. I joined the UCC - a little-known denomination out of Cleveland - about five years ago. It was the first church I'd ever seen that seemed to take seriously the idea that inclusion is a Christian value. It was also the first that actively sought to resolve divisions of culture, class, race and sexual orientation. So you can imagine how I feel about Wednesday's news that CBS and NBC have rejected a new UCC commercial celebrating just that characteristic: I am appalled.

Ricky Craven can sit on the wall along pit road at Daytona International Speedway and hardly anyone notices. His car owner, Cal Wells, can walk through the garage area and people notice, all right, but few go out of their way to speak to him. Craven, in the minds of many, is a has-been at age 34. A driver who was considered a rising star, he fell by the wayside after suffering head injuries in a crash at Texas in 1997. And Wells is considered a "carpetbagger," an owner whose moves when making the transition from open wheel to stock car racing were considered ruthless by several drivers and owners.

The city's zoning board rejected last night a controversial proposal for the first open-air bar and restaurant along the Fells Point waterfront.After hearing angry community leaders, a city councilman and a police officer -- all of whom said they were fed up with the rowdy drinkers, parking problems and noise in the colorful, historic community -- the Board of Municipal Zoning Appeals turned down Charles Craven's proposal. It was for a Malaysian-style restaurant called Craven's Island on a strip of grass at the water's edge of 2039 Aliceanna St.Since the board needed a unanimous vote from its four members to approve Mr. Craven's use of the land, the 3-1 vote in favor of the restaurant-bar sank the plan.
