“He can’t fight me. I’m him.”

Things are getting hot for the Halloweenies at 1428 Elm Street. To keep things cool, they’ve invited over a few friends for a bowl of Fu Man Chews cereal, an epic dance-off to Fonda Rae, and a hilarious game of Probe.

Join Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, senior writer Dan Caffrey, and writers Joe Lipsett and Trace Thurman of Bloody Disgusting’s Horror Queers Podcast to slice through 1985’s A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge.

Together, they discuss the sequel’s behind-the-scenes controversies, the queer metaphorical implications of Freddy Krueger, why everyone’s so sweaty, and the curious birthdays of stars Clu Gulager and Hope Lange.

So, grab some Sta-Up and listen above.
