In a sense of Writing and Direction (i.e. Carpenter, Hitchcock etc) or in a sense of characters (i.e. Jason, Michael etc)?

I have to go old school. Tie between Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft!

Easily Jason as the character. Writer would probably be Steven King.

I always figured it was Stephen King without really knowing. But when I went to the library about a month or two ago to check out some of his work I was completely amazed about how well known all of his work is. Amazed.

Definitely Stephen King when it comes to writing. And George A. Romero when it comes to film...although his output after Day of the Dead has been hit or miss for the most part.

David Cronenberg, even though he's moved on from the genre.

Hmmm.....John Carpenter is up there in the top, but I'm also going to have to include Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper,George Romero, and I will say Stephen King because I'm a big fan of his and I've heard some even call him 'The Master of Horror'.

If we're talking character, it has and always will be Jason Voorhees. Writer-wise I'll have to be predictable and say Stephen King, mostly because I'm not familiar with any author who has contributed anywhere near as much as he has. Maybe that's because no one has?

Director? I'd have to say John Carpenter.
