Kevin Bacon returns to summer-camp horror with a modern orientation.

THEY/THEM premieres as a Peacock Original exclusively on the streamer August 5. The directorial debut of screenwriter John Logan (SKYFALL, GLADIATOR), it stars FRIDAY THE 13TH and TREMORS’ Kevin Bacon, Anna Chlumsky, Theo Germaine, Carrie Preston, Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch and Darwin del Fabro. According to the official synopsis, “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.”
