Scream, Queen! Mark Patton

This is not your typical Nightmare On Elm Street documentary. Whether you're a horror fan or a gay advocate, Scream, Queen! has something to offer to everyone. We delve into a deeper subject of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 that has been at the forefront for years, yet no one has fully explored. This is a story not just about Mark Patton, the star of A Nightmare On Elm Street 2, but about Hollywood's gay subculture in the 1980s. For months we have been following Mark Patton around getting intimate accounts of how the backlash of NOES2 has deeply affected his life. From its release in 1985, fans and critics have raised an eyebrow at the not-so-subtle hints of Jesse Walsh's sexuality. Did this create the whirlwind of questions that set the film so far apart from all the others in its series? Village Voice publication was the first to officially comment on the film's gay subtext, releasing a landslide of both good and bad commentary from fans and critics worldwide. In 1985 being gay in Hollywood could cost you your career. Now 30 years later, Scream, Queen! is asking why?

Interviews with celebrities, film historians and fans allow Scream, Queen! to bring audiences a deeper understanding of the social atmosphere when A Nightmare On Elm Street 2 was released in 1985. The film explores the wide range of reactions elicited by the controversial movie - and how those reactions compare to those of today's audiences.

This year marking the 30th anniversary of the release of A Nightmare On Elm Street 2, we were able to capture the reunion of the entire cast and listen in on their candid panel discussion. This exclusive footage will be especially valuable to fans of NOES2.
