Conversion therapy horror film They/Them releases teaser trailer

The horror thriller from Blumhouse focusing on an LGBTQ+ conversion therapy camp, They/Them, has revealed its very first teaser trailer.

The teaser trailer follows Kevin Bacon as Owen Whistler, the director of the conversion therapy camp who works alongside his wife Cora, played by True Blood’s Carrie Preston, to help queer and trans campers to “find a new sense of freedom”. It seems business as usual when they are joined by They/Them’s main campers, however things quickly start to go wrong.

Pronounced as ‘They Slash Them’, this horror thriller looks at the psychological terror of conversion therapy but with a twist: there’s also a murderer on the loose, looking to claim their lives. If they want to survive, the group looks like they’ll have no other choice but to work together.

Described as “a queer empowerment story set at a gay conversion camp”, screenwriter and director John Logan has said that the film has been “germinating within me my whole life”.

“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,” Logan stated.

Watch the They/Them teaser trailer below.

Viewers will be able to watch They/Them when it exclusively debuts August 5 on Peacock.
