In this week's episode and in honor of Pride Month, we're discussing what the internet described as "the gayest horror movie of all time." It's the second entry into the "Nightmare on Elm Street" franchise, "Freddy's Revenge." Special topics for your consideration include: wanting to be good allies but also being mad at corporations, the concept of subtext (say it with me now, SUB-TEXT), generalized confusion about Freddy (is he a demon? a ghost? just a pest? Was he ever a school janitor? Is he both in dreams and the real world? Is it okay to just call him Fred?) and the power of love.

Are you a fan of this franchise? Episode 4 covers the original, but you may also like the 4th film, Episode 121- "Dream Child," and the 3rd film, Episode 242- "Dream Warriors." Why cover a franchise in chronological order when you can do it this way and feign outrage about not understanding anything?
