THEY/THEM: New Trailer And Poster For Peacock's LGBTQ+ Conversion Camp Slasher Released

Blumhouse has debuted a new trailer for upcoming Peacock Original film They/Them, which sees Kevin Bacon (Tremors, Flatliners) at his sinister best as a duplicitous conversion camp counsellor.

"I can't make you straight," Kevin Bacon's sinister Owen Whistler tells the kids who've just arrived at his camp. "But if you give us this weekend, we might be able to help."

Writer-director John Logan's (Penny Dreadful) new slasher flick about the horrors of conversion therapy is coming to Peacock on August 5, and Blumhouse has debuted an intense new trailer.

They/Them (pronounced They-Slash-Them) takes place at 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.”
