More than thirty years after the film's release, Mark Patton recounts difficulties he encountered while making A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge and sets the record straight on the famously queer horror sequel in the upcoming documentary Scream, Queen! My Nightmare On Elm Street.
Deadline reports that Virgil Films has acquired the documentary with plans release the film to both DVD and Digital in March 2020.
"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."
Roman Chimienti and Tyler Jensen directed the film, with Chimienti and Patton producing and Matthew Chojnacki serving as executive producer.
