The Plot of Peacock’s “They/Them”: Dissecting The Trailer
Peacock’s “They/Them” will be forcing you to reimagine the summer camp that you have always loved to attempt. At Whistler Camp, the owner Owen Whistler promises the students that they are in for a great week. This camp is listed as a gay conversion camp but as the synopsis suggests, Whistler states to the group that the camp “can’t make them straight, but he might be able to help with any of the bullying they’ve faced or the feelings they have”.
Of course, there is something fishy and suspicious about this. The trailer shows how the teens are subjected to group therapy sessions and solo meetings where they are forced to talk about their identity, orientations and more. Soon, the group realizes that things aren’t going as Owen claimed them to be. One of the characters, Veronicas, stated that she doesn’t understand anything that is going on at the camp and stated that they would “understand it a lot more if there was Bible-thumping and queer-bashing.”
As the trailer of Peacock’s “They/Them” progresses, we get to see how the teens are trying to survive in this camp. They discover photographs that suggest that the camp was on a hunt for finding them for a long time. Soon, the Whistler Camp turns out to be a horror place.
Peacock’s “They/Them” shows us the transition of how an odd therapist turned out to be a masked killer, even breaking car windows. The teens are scared for their life. But will they survive, or is there any other loop in the story? Peacock’s “They/Them” will make the audiences fear for the life of the campers who just thought about having a peaceful summer camp.

Logan described the film as, “They/Them” has been germinating within me my whole life. I’ve loved horror movies for as long as I can remember, I think because monsters represent ‘the other’ and as a gay kid, I felt a powerful sense of kinship with those characters who were different, outlawed, or forbidden. I wanted to make a movie that celebrates queerness, with characters that I never saw when I was growing up. 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.”
