Scream, Queen! My Nightmare On Elm Street

1h 40m Documentary, Horror 2019

A retrospective look at A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) and the life of its lead actor, Mark Patton.

Some have called it the ‘gayest horror movie ever made!’ But for Mark Patton, the star of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, it was anything but a dream come true. Detailing the homophobia and Aids-phobia of 1985 as a closeted actor in Hollywood, Mark retraces his obstacles, missteps, and detractors on the pathway to stardom. 30 years after its initial release, Patton is hitting the road to set the record straight about the controversial sequel and the experience that halted his career before it even began. Confronting the cast and crew for the first time, Mark attempts to make peace with his past, as well as embrace his legacy as cinema’s first male scream queen.
