The Overt Gayness of "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2"

A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge is not only the creepiest installment of the classic '80s horror series, with its demonic opening scene, lizard lashing tongues, and body snatcher plotline, but it turns out that it is also the GAYEST.

Often referred to as The Homo Nightmare, the film is wrought with gay overtones that you may or may not have picked up on as a kid (I for one never realized it and the producers plead ignorance as well). It also turns out that the actor who played the lead role of Jesse was in fact a closeted homosexual at the time.
