Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street
Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street sets the records straight about the controversial sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street, which ended Mark Patton's acting career, just as it was about to begin. Scream, Queen follows Patton as he travels to horror conventions across the U.S. Each new city unwraps a chapter from his life that is met with equal parts joyful and bittersweet detail, as he attempts to make peace with his past and embrace his legacy as cinema's first male "scream queen." Patton also confronts the cast and crew for the first time, including co-stars Robert Rusler, Kim Myers and Clu Gulager, as well as Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund. The film also examines the infamous homoerotic subtext of Nightmare 2 and the special place the film holds in the franchise as well as the gay film canon.
