The documentary Scream, Queen! My Nightmare On Elm Street will be premiering at Fantastic Fest this weekend, telling the story of Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge star Mark Patton. The doc invites fans “not only to delight in the batshit uniqueness of NOES2, but also asks them to reckon with what it means for the film to exist in the first place.”
Patton played lead character Jesse Walsh in Elm Street 2, and the impact the film – and the public response to it – had on his life will be explored in-depth in the documentary.
“Through interviews with the cast and crew of NOES2, as well as film and queer culture luminaries like Peaches Christ, directors Roman Chimienti and Tyler Jensen are unafraid to revel in the love and fandom that has grown for the film, while also confronting the heartbreaking and challenging realities that are part of its legacy.”
“At the center of it all is Mark Patton, a wonderfully gracious and honest man with an important story who is sure to win the hearts of all.”
“Scream, Queen! serves as an essential companion piece to NOES2, allowing Mark to tell his amazing story and providing crucial context that seals its place in the pantheon of great horror films, queer or otherwise.”
