Happy HOMO-ween: WATCH: “Scream Queen!” Trailer – The Gay Side of A Nightmare on Elm Street

Scream, Queen My Nightmare on Elm Street Poster

 

Three decades ago young actor Mark Patton starred as Jesse Walsh, the object of Freddy Krueger’s latent desire in A Nightmare on Elm Street 2.  And for 30 years hes been paying the price.

Via Kickstarter:

This is not your typical Nightmare On Elm Street documentary. Whether you’re a horror fan or a gay advocate, Scream, Queen! has something to offer to everyone. We delve into a deeper subject of A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 that has been at the forefront for years, yet no one has fully explored. This is a story not just about Mark Patton, the star of A Nightmare On Elm Street 2, but about Hollywood’s gay subculture in the 1980s. For months we have been following Mark Patton around getting intimate accounts of how the backlash of NOES2 has deeply affected his life. From its release in 1985, fans and critics have raised an eyebrow at the not-so-subtle hints of Jesse Walsh’s sexuality. Did this create the whirlwind of questions that set the film so far apart from all the others in its series? Village Voice publication was the first to officially comment on the film’s gay subtext, releasing a landslide of both good and bad commentary from fans and critics worldwide. In 1985 being gay in Hollywood could cost you your career. Now 30 years later, Scream, Queen! is asking why?

There is no release date in place for Scream Queen yet but director Tyler Jensen revealed that the film is nearing completion.

FIRST LOOK – The Trailer for the ‘Wikileaks’ Movie ‘The Fifth Estate’ – VIDEO

The Fifth Estate

The trailer for The Fifth Estate, the movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, has been released.

Assange has gone on record calling the film “a propaganda attack on Wikileaks”.

The Fifth Estate Director Bill Condon responds to Assange’s claims:

He had a tremendous falling-out with Daniel, and they have a real disagreement about events as they occur. Our movie is also based on a book by a Guardian reporter, and Assange took exception to that, too. But you know, he took exception to his own autobiography, which was ghostwritten by a wonderful author — he wouldn’t allow the release of it because it had things that were mildly critical of him. So he’s somebody who doesn’t really take well to presenting any other side
