They/Them (Peacock)

13 Of The Funniest Reactions To New Horror Movie ‘They/Them’ So Far

Peacock graced the world with a new horror movie recently called They/Them. That’s pronounced “They Slash Them,” a pun on this being a modern slasher flick about LGBT+ youths. In it, some queer teens show up at Whistler Camp, a summer camp run by Owen Whistler (Kevin Bacon.) He insists it isn’t a conversion camp, but the kids soon learn that may not be the case. Oh, and there’s a mysterious slasher laying waste to members of the camp. So there’s that to worry about, too.

But is it actually good? While it still might be too soon to tell, They/Them currently has a 30% critic’s rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an audience score of 17%. Yeah, that’s not great. But lets leave it to the comedic geniuses over at Letterboxd to get the real lowdown on this slasher horror. These They/Them reviews are hilarious.

The queer community isn’t thrilled.

"No sane gay person would ever vogue to effing perfect by pink please be fr..."
"There are two things in this life that I know for a fact don't work: this screenplay and conversion therapy."
"J.K. Rowling has nothing to do with this film but I still feel the need to shit on her just because. It's all her fault."
"I would happily give up all of my gay and trans rights if it meant movies like this were never made again."

Others just plain hate it.

"haha get it cause the / slash / them."
"twitter algorithm cinema."
"slash me because I can't do this anymore."
"Lea Michele would kill it here."
"I feel personally victimized by this movie."
"I stand with the white homophobic dog."
"The scariest part of this was discovering that Kevin Bacon is still alive."

And few reviews beat the elegance of this hardcore takedown.

"Oh you mean to tell me that the 2022 slasher film The/Them starring Kevin Bacon directed by the 60 year old Dude about a conversion camp released directly to Peacock TV streaming was absolutely Dog/Shit? No way!! I am beyond shocked."
