A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY'S REVENGE (1985)
Quick cash-in sequel or powerful cinematic depiction of a young man coming to terms with his homosexuality? Rather than erections and/or rubdowns, said yearnings are incarnated as none other than Freddy Kreuger, the horribly scarred, child-murdering hero of the ‘80s, who insists on “coming out” of our hero at only the most inopportune times. Any time our hard-luck teen protagonist Jesse finds himself alone (and shirtless) with another man, the sweat starts pouring, the teeth start gritting, and a certain veiny buddy is unleashed. A major departure from the initial installment, this one ramps up the awkwardness with a heapin’ helpin’ of very severe penetration angst. So strap on your leathers and come party with the original monster in the closet: Freddy! Join us for a special 35mm screening of this '80s slasher classic in conjunction with QFest.
