The latest Blumhouse film looks incredible and stars Kevin Bacon as a menacing camp counselor to boot. To make things even more disturbing Bacon is the head of a conversion camp. That setup for They/Them alone is already terrifying. The trailer then adds in all these other really disturbing cracks in the foundation that keeps amping up throughout the entire chilling trailer.
The second trailer gives a bit more of the plot away. Like, this time around you can tell that the team of counselors appears to be in some sort of cult or a group of aliens. There is something very strange going on within their group that will somehow result in a slasher going after the attendees. I seriously can’t wait to see this one.
The synopsis for They/Them goes like this:
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.
The film stars Carrie Preston, Anna Chlumsky, Theo Germaine, Quei Tann, Anna Lore, Monique Kim, Darwin del Fabro, Cooper Koch, and Austin Crute.
They/Them arrives exclusively on Peacock beginning August 5.

‘Dahmer’ Has Broken Netflix Series Debut Records – Crushing Even ‘Squid Game’
Squid Game was event television when it dropped onto Netflix. I don’t know if you remember but the number of folks chatting about the series was insanely high and something you couldn’t escape anywhere. Well, Ryan Murphy’s recent debut of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story somehow eclipsed that show’s number of viewers by a long shot in its first week.
The chilling exploration of serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer pulled in 192.6 million viewers within its first week. During, Squid Game’s first week the series saw 63.1 million viewers tuning in. That is a huge debut for the series that is now Netflix’s number one series.
The synopsis for Netflix’s Dahmer goes like this:
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.
Have you watched Evan Peter’s chilling transformation into Dahmer yet?
‘Slash/Back’ Trailer is Filled With Kids Fighting Lovecraftian Body Horrors
‘Slash/Back’ is giving us a very The Thing-aligned sort of plot with one major exception… this film is about a group of young girls instead of a bunch of grumpy dudes. Slash/Back also features some very Lovecraftian bits compounded by the use of some intense-looking body horror. All-in-all, there is nothing to not absolutely dig about this trailer.
A small town becomes the target of a monster invasion and it’s up to a group of kiddos to go on the warpath against all of them.
The synopsis for Slash/Back is as follows:
Set in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the majestic mountains of Baffin Island in the Arctic Ocean, SLASH/BACK opens as the village wakes up to a typical summer day. No School, no cool boys (well… except one), and 24-hour sunlight. But for Maika and her ragtag friends, the usual summer is suddenly not in the cards when they discover an alien invasion threatening their hometown. These teenagers have been underestimated their whole lives but, using makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, they show the aliens you don’t f*** with the girls from Pang.
The film stars Tasiana Shirley, Alexis Vincent-Wolfe, Nalajoss Ellsworth and Chelsea Prusky.
Slash/Back is in theaters, On Demand and on digital beginning October 21.
