Tyler Jensen & Roman Chimienti are the directorial duo behind Scream Queen, My Nightmare on Elm Street. The documentary dives deep into the story behind A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, a sequel that was notorious for its homoerotic innuendo and lots of ensuing controversy.
I really enjoyed this documentary - not only because I’m a horror fan and love Freddy movies but because Scream Queens is unexpectedly emotional journey, that’s ultimately a very poignant story about forgiveness and the gay experience Regan-era America during the 1980’s.
The movie follows actor Mark Patton who was ridiculed for his gay portrayal of the protagonist in Nightmare 2. We follow him throughout the course of a year on the convention circuit interacting with fans and along the way, he confronts the producers & directors who in effect, tarnished his career.
All in all, it’s a very important watch, so I highly recommend it.
