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.

Unbelievably SPECTACULAR! My life is better for having watched this documentary. My favorite part is at the end, where he tells from a new perspective, how he’s come to answer the question “god why me?”. Truly a heartwarming documentary 🤘🤍
I've been holding out for this film and it wonderful. Thank you Mark Patton for telling your story.
Thanks very much, Mr. Patton, for telling your story!
Damn this was great!!!The journey that Mark took throughout his whole life just confirms that,if you are strong enough and your will is there you can survive just about anything and,come out a better individual. This is definitely a strong reccomend!!!
A great documentary about a movie that has ended up meaning a lot to a lot of people. Mark's story is an important one and deserves to be told and I appreciate just how human he comes across in a movie he was clearly working hand in hand with the directors on. That there are times when people ask Mark what it is he wants and he can't really tell them.
