Sophie Guest Talks About ‘Them’ The New Horror Anthology On Amazon Prime [Exclusive Interview]


When you think of racial oppression, your mind usually goes to the southern states of the United States for obvious reasons. But segregated neighborhoods could have popped up anywhere. Including Compton, California. This is where we pick up the new Amazon Prime Video’s critically acclaimed horror anthology series, Them. It debuted at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival to great reviews and won the Audience Award.

Here is the synopsis for Amazon’s Them:

Them is a limited anthology series that explores terror in America. The 1950s set first season centers on a Black family who moves from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood during the period known as The Great Migration. The family’s idyllic home becomes ground zero where malevolent forces, next-door and otherworldly, threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.

Them was required by Little Marvin. Executive producers are Marvin, Lena Waithe, Miri Yoon, and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment. David Matthews, and Don Kurt. It is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios.


The cast for Them includes Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Alison Pill, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Melody Hurd, Ryan Kwanten, and Sophie Guest.

With the release of the series this week, LRM Online spoke with Sophie Guest, one of the rising stars of Them. She has a very interesting character that we won’t talk too much about. During our conversation, we talk about the idea of oppression on the west coast, where we usually don’t think of it happening. As well as the timing of the release of the series in 2021. We also talk about her experience working on a horror series and if she enjoyed working on the genre. You can check out the full interview down below!
