Owen Whistler, the leader of a conversion therapy camp called Whistler Camp, which seeks to “turn” LGBTQ + teens straight and cis-gendered. The film takes place over a week-long session in the camp and focuses on the various campers, led by trans- and non-binary Jordan (Theo Germaine), while undergoing psychological pain from the camp’s programming. When an unidentified killer begins to claim victims, the children must band together to protect each other, both from the killer and from camp staff.
Bacon and Theo Germaine are joined by Anna Chlumsky and Carrie Preston as Camp Whistler staff, plus Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch and Darwin del Fabro as Jordan’s friends and fellow campers.
says Logan They them has been
sprouts in me all my life. I’ve loved horror movies for as long as I can remember, I think, because monsters represent ‘the other’, and as a gay child, I felt a strong sense of kinship with the characters that were different, forbidden or forbidden. I wanted to make a movie that pays homage to queerness, with characters I never saw when I was growing up. When people walk away from the film, I hope they will remember the incredible love that these children have for each other and how that love should be protected and celebrated. “
Blumhouses Jason Blum and Michael Aguilar produced They them. Logan and Bacon act as executive producers alongside Scott Turner Schofield, Howie Young and Jon Romano. When this project was originally announced, it went under the title Whistler Camp.
I’ve enjoyed several of Logan’s writing projects, but what have I guaranteed to see They them When it reaches Peacock, it’s just the fact that it’s a horror movie that takes place in a camp, with Kevin Bacon in the lead role. Friday the 13th is one of my favorite movies, so I’m excited to see Bacon return to camp for more horror.
