‘Talk To Me’ Trailer: A24’s Buzzy Demonic Sundance Horror Hits Theaters This Summer

There are always a number of buzzy titles to emerge out of Sundance, and this year it was Talk to Me that had horror fans talking. The film by Youtube sensations Danny & Michael Philippou, known by the monicker RazzaRazza, centers on a group of teens who tempt demonic spirits with an embalmed hand, becoming viral sensations in the process. Of course, things go wildly out of control and suddenly being Internet celebs isn’t so cool.

The film stars Sophie Wilde, Miranda Otto, Alexandra Jensen, Joe Bird, Otis Dhanji, Zoe Terakes, and Chris Alosio. Danny Philippou co-wrote the film’s script with Bill Hinzman.

Here’s the synopsis: When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, they become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.

A24 scooped up the rights, and they might be the perfect home for it, as they’ve created instant horror classics with Hereditary, The Witch, Midsommar, and more. Talk to Me hits theaters on July 28th.
