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.

WE LOVE U MARK PATTON! YOU WILL ALWAYS BE FAMOUS!
An essential retrospective and look forward on the real-world horrors that laid the foundation of Nightmare on Elm Street 2. Be prepared for a heavy, tear-jerking watch that feels utterly important and essential viewing for any horror and documentary fan.
A definately must watch not only for the nightmare on elm Street fans, but for those who want to learn about Hollywood back then and how people avoided responsibility and the history of film.
An important must-watch for any Nightmare fan.
I hope Mark has found true solace in the impact the resurgence of this film has had on the LGBTQ+ community and horror fans in general. An excellent documentary that made me appreciate the power horror really has as a subversive genre.
