NBC’s streaming service Peacock has released the first teaser trailer to its original LGBTQ slasher film, “They/Them,” starring Kevin Bacon.

“Bacon plays Owen Whistler in this slasher horror film set at an LGBTQIA+ conversion camp,” the film’s synopsis reads. “Several queer and trans campers join Whistler for a week of programming intended to ‘help them find a new sense of freedom.’ As the camp’s methods become increasingly more psychologically unsettling, the campers must work together to protect themselves. When a mysterious killer starts claiming victims, things get even more dangerous.”

“They/Them” is written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan, whose credits include “Gladiator,” “The Aviator,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Hugo” and “Skyfall,” just to name a few. This will be Logan’s first time directing a film.

Bacon, who is also an executive producer on the film, will be joined on the cast by Anna Chlumsky (“Inventing Anna,” “Veep”), Theo Germaine (“The Politician,” “Work In Progress”), Carrie Preston (“Claws,” “Dr. Death”), Quei Tann (“How to Get Away with Murder,” “Dear White People”), Austin Crute (“Booksmart,” “Daybreak”), Monique Kim (“High Expectasians,” “Looks That Kill”), Anna Lore (“All American,” “Doom Patrol”), Cooper Koch (“Less Than Zero,” “A New York Christmas Wedding”) and Darwin del Fabro (“Dangerous Liaisons,” “Novo Mundo”).

“They/Them” is a Blumhouse production and will stream exclusively on Peacock starting Aug. 5.
