    19 Reactions To The New Blumhouse Horror "They/Them" That Will Either Make You Want To Watch It Or Avoid It

    The reviews are in.

    The new slasher film They/Them fan reactions are in, and they are totally making me need to see this flick.

    Naturally, horror films are always going to be a mixed bag of opinions, but the reviews for They/Them seem to really be divisive. Now, that's led me to a round-up of fan reactions that still have me wanting to check out the film (maybe to see just how it really is). Let's have a look, shall we?

    1. That's a lot of emotions:

    2. This review has got me imagining what the ratings would be like if Kevin Bacon wasn't in it:

    3. "A special kind of awful."

    Y’all #TheyThem was a special kind of awful….why can’t they EVER get queer horror right?

    5. Well, I did tell you the general consensus of the film.

    Watched #TheyThem the other week. It had potential b/c of the subject matter but it's poor. It's an under-developed idea draped over an 80's slasher. It felt like they filmed a 1st draft. This is personified by the fact half the cast doesn't have a single line! #HorrorMovies

    8. At this point, I am genuinely taken aback to see a 10/10 rating:

    9. Out of all the things you could take away from They/Them, this has to be the funniest.

    So I plan on watching #theyslashthem and I just found out that Kevin Bacon is not Ethan Hawke. I swear, they're literally twins!
