Film & Begegnung A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge

Queer loox: The queer-feminist film series in Luxembourg

Dieser Text existiert nicht auf Deutsch.

A new family moves into the house on Elm Street, and before long, the kids are having nightmares about deceased child murderer Freddy Krueger. This time, Freddy attempts to possess a teenage boy to cause havoc in the real world, and can only be overcome if the boy’s girlfriend can master her fear.

The film’s legacy is a rarity in the horror genre, featuring, of all things, a male scream queen. Since its release in 1985, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge has become a homoerotic icon in queer cinema.

queer loox

queer loox is a queer-feminist film and event series in Luxembourg. Queer in a broad sense signifies a crossing of traditional identity categories and implies a critical engagement with the division between the normal’ and the social illegitimate’. The events present a wide range of feature films, documentaries, video art, ethnographic films, etc. with the intention of becoming a queer-feminist platform where people meet, talk, and sometimes even dance.
