Virgil Films is releasing the award winning documentary – Scream Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street – directed by Roman Chimienti & Tyler Jensen.
This is the documentary that 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! My Nightmare on Elm Street will open in theaters beginning on February 27th – March 4 in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Glendale Theater.
The film will roll out nationally following this one week engagement and will also have a VOD release beginning on March 3 on all platforms including Apple TV, Amazon, Google Play, VUDU, etc.
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. Detailing the homophobia and AIDS-phobia of 1985 as a closeted actor in Hollywood, Mark retraces his obstacles, missteps, and detractors on the pathway to stardom.
Thirty years after the initial release of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2, Scream Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street sets the records straight about the controversial sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street, which ended Mark’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.
