Kevin Bacon said the premise of his new movie “They/Them” about a gay “conversion” camp is just as terrifying as the gory slashings onscreen.
“This is a scary movie,” Bacon told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” Wednesday. “It’s a movie set in a gay conversion camp and that’s probably the scariest thing about it. All of these young people come to this camp, and they have either been forced to be there or they’ve decided to bring themselves there.”
“The horror is that I think that I can try to make them be something that they’re not,” continued Bacon, who portrays the homophobic camp director. “And it’s all wrapped up in a really fun slasher movie.”
