‘They/Them’ Trailer: New Queer Slasher Wreaks Havoc On A Conversion Camp
We can't wait for this one.
Coming this summer is Blumhouse’s latest horror venture, They/Them, a queer horror film written, directed, and executive-produced by John Logan (Gladiator, Skyfall). Set at a queer conversion camp, both adults and the campers alike must survive the violent wrath of a masked killer.
Read the film’s full synopsis below:
Kevin Bacon plays Owen Whistler in this slasher horror film set at an LGBTQIA+ conversion camp. Several queer and trans campers join Whistler for a week of programming intended to “help them find a new sense of freedom”. As the camp’s methods become increasingly more psychologically unsettling, the campers must work together to protect themselves. When a mysterious killer starts claiming victims, things get even more dangerous.
Now check out They/Them‘s new trailer:
The trailer really leans into the us-versus-them aesthetic with the split-screen. Plus we get a wicked mask reveal and that only has me hyped for August. It’s exciting to see Bacon back in a hellish summer camp. Only this time, he’s the villain, or at least one of them.
They/Them features an absolutely stacked cast including Bacon, Anna Chlumsky, Theo Germaine, and Carrie Preston. Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch, and Darwin del Fabro also star in the film.
“They/Them has been germinating within me my whole life. I’ve loved horror movies as long as I can remember, I think because monsters represent ‘the other’ and as gay kid I felt a powerful sense of kinship with those characters who were different, outlawed, or forbidden,” said writer and director, John Logan. “I wanted to make a movie that celebrates queerness, with characters that I never saw when I was growing up. When people walk away from the movie, I hope they’re going to remember the incredible love that these kids have for each other and how that love needs to be protected and celebrated.”
They/Them comes exclusively to Peacock on August 5.
