THEY/THEM: First Look At Blumhouse's LGBTQIA+ Conversion Camp Slasher Starring Kevin Bacon Revealed

Blumhouse has released the first stills from the ingeniously titled They/Them, an upcoming slasher movie set at a conversion camp for LGBTQIA+ teens. Take a look...

A new slasher flick about the horrors of conversion therapy is coming to Peacock on August 5, and Blumhouse has debuted the first official stills.

They/Them (pronounced They-Slash-Them) stars Kevin Bacon as Owen Whistler, the director of a conversion therapy camp which attempts to “turn” LGBTQ+ teenagers straight and cisgender. Set over a week-long session, the film focuses on the various campers, led by trans and nonbinary Jordan (Theo Germaine), as they undergo psychological torment from the camp’s programming.

When an unidentified killer begins claiming victims, the kids must team up to protect each other, both from the killer and from the camp staff.

Anna Chlumsky and Carrie Preston will also star as Camp Whistler staff members, along with Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch and Darwin del Fabro  as Jordan’s fellow campers.

The movie will serve as the directorial debut of Gladiator and The Aviator writer John Logan. 

“They/Them has been germinating within me my whole life,” Logan said in a statement. “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. 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.”

Check out the images below, and keep an eye out for the first trailer.
