Halloween Queektacular – A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 / Thir13en Ghosts & The Thing

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is considered by some to be the gayest horror movie ever made, and some are pretty spot on. The movie treats us to a menagerie of homoerotic imagery, and delves into psychological horror when it comes to tormenting its star. Then we shift gears and watch each other’s favorite horror movies, Thir13en Ghosts (Ben’s pick) and The Thing (Cody’s pick).
