Some have called it the ‘gayest horror movie ever made’, but for Mark Patton - the star of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge - it was anything but a dream come true.
As a closeted actor in the homophobic and AIDS-phobic Hollywood of 1985, Mark retraces his obstacles and missteps on the path to stardom. Over 30 years after its initial release, Patton sets the record straight about the controversial sequel and the experience that halted his career before it even began.
Confronting the cast and crew for the first time, Mark attempts to make peace with his past and embrace his legacy as cinema’s first male scream queen.
