In 1985, the world of cinema introduced audiences to the first-ever Final Boy in the pantheon of horror. Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge depicted the struggle of identity and sexuality in the nightmarish hellscape that is high school. The notorious sequel, now considered a camp classic, wasn’t always a fun experience. In the new documentary Scream, Queen: My Nightmare on Elm Street, actor Mark Patton revisits and reveals the monsters that lied within the closet of Hollywood throughout the eighties.
