The jokes on Bacon’s character Owen Whistler because his conversion therapy isn’t going to be changing these kids to what he wants. If anything, being there is going to bring them closer together. That’s especially true when a mysterious killer starts killing people. And the campers have to survive the psychological attacks from the counselors but also the murderer taking them out one by one.
Besides starring Bacon, They/Them includes an ensemble cast that includes Carrie Preston, Anna Chlumsky, Theo Germaine, Quei Tann, Anna Lore, Monique Kim, Darwin del Fabro, Cooper Koch, and Austin Crute. It’s written and directed by Academy Award Winner John Logan, best known for their work on Alien: Covenant and Penny Dreadful. And They/Them is produced by Jason Blum, the CEO of Blumhouse Productions.

When a group of LGBTQ+ campers arrives at Whistler Camp – a conversion camp run by Owen Whistler (Kevin Bacon) – they are promised a “new sense of freedom” by the end of the week. But as the counselors attempt to psychologically break down each of the campers, a mysterious killer starts claiming victims, and they must reclaim their power if they’re going to survive the horrors of the camp.
