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.

I didn’t know this movie had such a huge influence. I definitely recommend this. Thought-provoking, inspirational, informative and ultimately uplifting.
An extremely effective and emotional documentary. Mark Patton is so open and vulnerable. A touching, informative testimonial not only about Nightmare 2, but more importantly about what it was like to be a gay man in the '80s in Hollywood.
Homeboy is my hero
An extremely powerful, raw, and emotional watch for fellow LGBT horror fans. Cannot recommend enough.
