In it, playwright Joshua Harmon holds up a mirror to white liberalism.

  • Horror Queers Podcast Live Recording: A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 with Mark Patton!

    Bloody Disgusting's Horror Queers Podcast, which looks at horror films through a queer lens, will be having its first live recording as part of Fantastic Fest's LGBTQ+ sidebar! Hosts Trace Thurman and Joe Lipsett will be discussing the controversial 1985 sequel A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge with the film's star Mark Patton. Listen to them discuss the making of the film and how it has gone from the red-headed stepchild of the Nightmare franchise to wearing the "gayest horror film ever made" moniker as a badge of honor. The event is free and open to the public, so you don't need a Fantastic Fest badge to be able to attend!
