ctor Mark Patton (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge) and co-directors Roman Chimienti and Tyler Jensen virtually join The Movie Crypt to discuss their new documentary Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street - now streaming wherever you prefer to watch new releases!
While being careful not to spoil the documentary, the group discusses the fascinating process of making a movie about a man’s life story only to find that pivotal moments of that ongoing story are taking place right before their cameras. Star Mark Patton's story is an important one and the co-directors discuss: Nightmare 2 originally being looked upon as a controversial slasher sequel because of its infamous homoerotic subtext; that subtext was a huge reason why the film is celebrated many decades later; Patton being “outed” by the film before he was ready to “come out” and coming to terms with his long standing resentment toward the experience.
