Movie Info

Scream Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street sets the records straight about the controversial sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street, which ended Mark Patton's acting career, just as it was about to begin. Scream Queen follows Patton as he travels to horror conventions across the U.S. Each new city unwraps a chapter from his life that is met with equal parts joyful and bittersweet detail, as he attempts to make peace with his past and embrace his legacy as cinema's first male "scream queen." Scream Queen also finds Patton confronting Freddy's Revenge cast and crew for the first time, including co-stars Robert Rusler, Kim Myers and Clu Gulager, as well as Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund.

Critic Reviews for Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (4)

Perhaps the slickly made documentary overstates the cultural impact of a little-seen and widely disliked film. However, it earns points for scraping at the surface of something rarely discussed in film fandom - homosexuality in horror.

Scream, Queen! feels a bit self-indulgent at times, exploring so many tangents that it tends to lose focus. Nonetheless, it's a fascinating sociological examination of the circumstances surrounding a film that inadvertently became a camp classic.

Scream, Queen! reaches into the fabulous recesses of queer horror fans, filmmakers, and academics to offer a well-rounded and humorous accounting of the queer cult classic.

Scream, Queen! is as challenging as it is loving, and it shouldn't be missed.

July 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street is a cautionary tale about bitterness, and it's a wake-up call for any actors who think they're owed a long and successful career in showbiz just because they starred in a couple of movies.
