Upon its release, audiences mistook NOES2 for another quickie cash-grab sequel. Little did they realize that it’s actually the single most powerful cinematic depiction of a young man coming to terms with his latent 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! (Zack)
