Latest buzz around 'They/Them' 

1) In an interview with Vanity Fair, Kevin Bacon mentioned, “I like it because it’s life and death, because the stakes are really high. The hardest part about horror to me is finding different levels and different ways to express terror and anxiety, and not make them all the same. If you have to be scared for an hour and 45 minutes, sometimes you can run out of tricks. You can run out of scary-face looks, he added.”
