Kevin Bacon Is Back to Camp in First Trailer for LGBTQ Slasher Movie They/Them

When the title for Peacock’s LGBTQ horror film They/Them hit the web a few weeks ago, it sent pun-loving movie geeks into something of a tizzy, once the pronunciation of “They Slash Them” was understood. A neo-retro slasher movie, set at a summer camp, albeit one being used for controversial gay conversion therapy? And starring none other than Kevin Bacon, who was memorably offed in the original Friday the 13th way back in 1980? That’s some brilliant marketing and casting, right there. It remains to be seen if the film can live up to the satisfying nature of that title.

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.

Kevin Bacon Career

Kevin Bacon left home at age 17 to pursue a theater career in New York City, where he appeared in a production at the Circle in the Square Theater School. “I wanted life, man, the real thing”, he later recalled to Nancy Mills of Cosmopolitan. “The message I got was ‘The arts are it. Business is the devil’s work. Art and creative expression are next to godliness.’ Combine that with an immense ego and you wind up with an actor.” Bacon’s debut in the fraternity comedy National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978) did not lead to the fame he had sought, and Bacon returned to waiting tables and auditioning for small roles in theater. He briefly worked on the television soap operas Search for Tomorrow (1979) and Guiding Light (1980–81) in New York.

In 1982, he won an Obie Award for his role in Forty Deuce, and soon afterward he made his Broadway debut in Slab Boys, with then-unknowns Sean Penn and Val Kilmer. However, it was not until he portrayed Timothy Fenwick that same year in Barry Levinson’s film Diner – costarring Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern, Mickey Rourke, Tim Daly, and Ellen Barkin – that he made an indelible impression on film critics and moviegoers alike.

In 1990, Bacon had two successful roles. He played a character who saved his town from under-the-earth “graboid” monsters in the comedy/horror film Tremors, and he portrayed an earnest medical student experimenting with death in Joel Schumacher’s Flatliners.

In 2000, he appeared in Paul Verhoeven’s Hollow Man. Bacon, Colin Firth and Rachel Blanchard depict a ménage à trois in their film, Where the Truth Lies. Bacon and director Atom Egoyan have condemned the MPAA ratings board decision to rate the film “NC-17” rather than the preferable “R”. Bacon commented: “I don’t get it, when I see films (that) are extremely violent, extremely objectionable sometimes in terms of the roles that women play, slide by with an R, no problem, because the people happen to have more of their clothes on.”

Kevin Bacon Personal Life

Bacon has been married to actress Kyra Sedgwick since September 4, 1988; they met on the set of the PBS version of Lanford Wilson’s play Lemon Sky. He has said: “The time I was hitting what I considered to be bottom was also the time I met my wife, our kids were born, good things were happening. And I was able to keep supporting myself; that always gave me strength.” Bacon and Sedgwick have starred together in Pyrates,Murder in the FirstThe Woodsman, and Loverboy. They have two children, Travis Sedgwick (b. 1989) and Sosie Ruth (b. 1992). They reside on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Bacon was previously in a five-year relationship with actress Tracy Pollan, in the 1980s.

Bacon and Sedgwick learned in 2011, via their appearance on the PBS TV show Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, that they are ninth cousins, once removed. They also appeared in a video promoting the “Bill of Reproductive Rights”, supporting among other things a woman’s right to choose and have access to birth control.
