Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street
Directed by Roman Chimienti, Tyler Jensen
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. 35 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. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Great documentary!! I love all of the behind the scenes and human interest documentaries.
Great doc and surprisingly heartwarming. Marc Patton deserved better!
I love the Nightmare series and admittedly never liked this movie. I never cared about the gay subtext, it just didn't fit in with the canon of the rest of the series and is kind of a standalone fever dream. That being said, this documentary was great. I may not like the movie, but I definitely respect it now. Once again, Shudder is killing it with the documentaries.
As someone who has experienced all the horrible things gay men have gone through, I really enjoyed watching this documentary following the lead actor of the film and the struggles he has faced. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 is a movie that has left its mark in queer history and this documentary tells you why.
loved it !!!!
