Wes Craven Films Clinton's Last Day

Horror film director Wes Craven (Scream, Halloween) oversaw the filming of Bill Clinton's final day in the White House, columnist Roger Friedman reported today.

Friedman said that Craven filmed Clinton for 2 3/4 hours, although his crew spent much of the rest of the day at the presidential residence filming such little-seen places as the kitchen and the gym. "I was thinking here I am, I've made some of the most horrific films, and now I'm in the White House,"

Craven told Friedman. "Someone said I should have brought a Scream mask and had someone jump out in it, but that would have been the last time we would have been invited over." The completed film is due to be shown at the Clinton Library in Little Rock (if protesters don't succeed in halting its construction there).
