It’s the second week of our Queer Horror Month and we’re discussing a classic – 1985’s ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge.’ We are joined by one of the true scholars of this movie, filmmaker Michael Varrati. We dissect the homoerotic subtext (and text) of the film, and what it’s like to watch it through a 2021 lens. We also recast some of the classic killers of cinema. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’
