Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge was released in 1985. Many horror fans initially disliked the movie, with some commenting on its gay subtext. Mark Patton, the film’s young lead, was a closeted actor, and over the following years he was profoundly effected by the film.

In Scream, Queen! Directors Chimienti and Jensen examine the film, the effect on Patton, and the fans subsequent re-evaluation of the title as a camp classic in the thirty-five years since its initial release.

"While Scream, Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street is initially situated as a sort of TMZ takedown for the horror set, something wonderful happens. It becomes a stirring Hollywood history lesson, and a convincing plea for inclusion as one of fandom’s better sides.” - Consequence of Sound
