Them’ is an American horror drama streaming television anthology series created by Little Marvin. After all, you’ve got Black people navigating previously white spaces; in this case, Marvin shows us a Black family moving from North Carolina to Los Angeles.
As part of the great migration of the 1950s setting, supernatural elements, anachronistic music choices, war trauma, mysterious basements, leaps in chronology, large fonts, announcing a change in location, a creepy kid dancing, etc. The dialogue is witty and makes the awful things the characters do seem slightly less horrible. One critique went so far as to call the film downright awful. I have to wonder if some critics just didn’t get what the film was going for. It may not be perfect, but it’s far from awful.
