Horror Movie Director Wes Craven Sues Neighbor, Comedian Pauly Shore

It's a nightmare on his street: horror maven Wes Craven is suing his neighbor, comedian Pauly Shore, for damaging the director's property.

The 67-year-old Craven, famous for his Nightmare On Elm Street and Scream movies, claimed Shore caused a landslide on his Los Angeles-area property in December.

In documents filed June 20 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Craven accuses Shore of negligence and nuisance after improperly upgrading his home with a swimming pool, spa, landscaping, and other improvements.

Craven claims seeping water has destablized the land and lowered his property values. The suit seeks unspecified damages, including repair costs.

Pauly Shore's publicist did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
