Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street comes to Shudder.

In 1985, Mark Patton starred as the terrorized victim in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, a mainstream movie many felt had a homoerotic context. Patton, then a closeted gay, found himself so typecast afterwards that he quit acting for three decades. His tale is told in Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street, a 2019 documentary that looks back on the making of Freddy’s Revenge and its legacy – and finds Patton confronting the film’s cast and crew for the first time ever.

Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street debuts on subscription streamer Shudder tomorrow, June 4. It’s also available right now to Amazon Prime subscribers, or you can rent it from $3.99 at Amazon, Apple TV, Vudu, Vimeo or YouTube.

For a full Scream, Queen! experience, you’ll want to watch — or rewatch — the original cult classic. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is available to Amazon Prime and HBO Max subscribers, and renting for $2.99 from Amazon, Google Play, iTunes or other providers.
