    Q&A: Mark Patton reflects on “FREDDY’S REVENGE” and More

    One of the more significant things that occurred in the wake of NEVER SLEEP AGAIN, the 2010 documentary about the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series, was the re-examination of the series’ second entry, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE. Since that time, the film’s lead, Mark Patton, has taken to the convention circuit, providing a very visible presence for what many have labeled the gayest horror film ever made. In honor of his upcoming appearance at THE MASSACRE in Chicago (see details below), Patton talks to FANGORIA about his memories of his NIGHTMARE cast mates and the platform that he has created for himself as an activist and humanitarian.

    Following two forays in the fantasy genre with the short films MAL CUERPO (2011) and CASTIDERMIA (2012), the latter of which was co-directed with Xavi Garriga, Marc Carreté (born in Barcelona, 1970) makes his feature debut with the film ASMODEXIA; a road film concerning an evangelist grandfather, his granddaughter, exorcisms and the city of Barcelona as theatre of the events (a metropolis that has, in recent years, become the impromptu set of many horror productions: from REC [Paco Plaza & Jaume Balagueró, 2007] to LOS ÚLTIMOS DIAS [Alex Pastor & David Shepherd, 2012], Hooked Up [Paul Larcuen, 2013] and even the U.S. and Canada co-production AFFLICTED [Clif Prowse & Derek Lee, 2013], of which the initial section was also developed in Barcelona).
