“The gay one!” That’s how audiences in 1985 contemptuously described not only A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2—the utterly queer sequel to one of the most iconic horror films of all time—but also its young, closeted lead actor, Mark Patton. This revealing documentary tells the story of his career-ending box-office failure and spirit-rending heartbreak. But after the movie finds new life as a cult classic, Patton discovers legions of LGBTQ horror fans who embrace him. Featuring interviews with cast members, including Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger himself), SCREAM, QUEEN! is ultimately an uplifting film that shows—just like the beloved monster he once shared the screen with—you just can’t keep a good queen down.
