Description by Wikipedia

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge is a 1985 American slasher film and the second film in the Nightmare on Elm Street series. The film was directed by Jack Sholder and stars Mark Patton, Kim Myers, Robert Rusler and Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger. It is the sequel to A Nightmare on Elm Street and is followed by A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

The film grossed $29.9 million at the North American box office. Screenwriter David Chaskin denied its strong homoerotic subtext until 2010, when he admitted he intentionally added it to increase the film's horror for the teenage boys who made up the bulk of the audience. Patton, who had not yet come out as gay himself, felt used by this and left acting shortly afterwards, blaming Chaskin, who in turn says Patton's interpretation of the part had as much to do with that subtext as his script.
